Has as much potential for success as failure
13 September 2018 | by plummetingparadiseSee all my reviews

Surprised at the amount of negative reviews this show has garnered so far. I've only watched the first episode but complaints that the characters are two-dimensional seem unfair without allowing the show to build those characters past the first episode. Of course this is assuming they are laying groundwork for substantive growth of character, which they might not be doing. My point is simply that it has the potential to be a good show, and at a time when the way we get our news is rapidly evolving seemingly without deliberation I'm for even superficial examinations of that process. Anything to kickstart a real conversation.
