Storyline

18 year old Vic McQueen discovers she can cross an old covered bridge on her motorbike and it will take her anywhere in the world where a lost thing is located. Meanwhile a mysterious old man named Charlie Manx kidnaps a young boy, killing his parents, and seems to be draining his life force as they drive to a mysterious place called "Christmasland." Maggie, a young woman who was friends with the boy and his family, has the special power of drawing Scrabble tiles from in a bag that spell out a clue to find missing things. She uses this to try and find the lost boy. Written by NOS4A2LUVR

The Shorter Way
3 June 2019 | by NDbportmanfanSee all my reviews

As far as premiere episodes go, the show did what it needed to do. They hooked me; I found the general concept interesting and when it was over I was left with questions. Mainly with how the bridge worked and what is happening to the children. The characters so far haven't peaked my interest but I'll wait to see how the main characters interact with one another. On the technical side there were some editing hiccups and our female leads knowledge of the bridge doesnt add up. Other than those problems I enjoyed the episode.

I'd go 8/10 on this one.
