CGiii Comment

Well...this will ruffle some's all rather un/anti-American.
Conspiracy theorists will probably love it...but, for those who have their feet firmly planted on terra's a bit of a cat and mouse mess.
There are some good points...but, those are obliterated by the bad...the main problem: the writing. Wholly.
It's as if the writers all sat around a big, huge table with lollipops and soda...throwing ideas into the pot and squealing...ooooooh that sounds cooooooool. Not cool, dismal.
There's the trans character - fiery and spirited, screwing a decorated military man - you just know it's not going to end well for her.
There's the gay character...a computer hacker who lives in a squalid apartment with his moribund mother, still waiting to pop his cherry...the object of his affections...
...The activist - who can't act - the weakest link in this daisy chain of ideas...
It's a shame...because, the semblance of a decent story is there...where are the script editors when you need them?!?!
A classic case for taking your audience for's not looking good for a second series...neither should it.


The(ir) Blurb...

Three families are torn apart when a stranded female soldier, a disillusioned corporate attorney and a disrespected political activist are pulled into the same shocking international military conspiracy.
