Overall this is adequate, but with several plot points and character traits which are difficult to believe. The biggest problem I have is the various brushes against citizen-terrorism apologetics. My takeaway is that this show is "safe", with some edginess fabricated for the kids.
A bad guy blackmails the good guys because he likes this one good girl.
My impression from the first few episodes was:
Seems "ok". Unless this has a more interesting story-arc, I won't consider this particularly good. The predictable and episodic nature of television bores the shit out of me. It makes a series only valuable only the course of multiple episodes and individual episodes become the shit I have to slog through.
My later impression, from the end of the second season:
Characters were slow and stiff until they were developed more fully. When they were, a broader story arc took hold, making this show quite a bit more interesting.
My final impression:
It gets repetitive and annoying.
Avoid cliffhangers: Watch more when it's part way into the next season.
A detective is haunted with hallucinations that include his dead partner, who was killed under mysterious circumstances.
I think some would find this movie slow and boring, and I did at first, but it very quickly revealed a depth and character that I haven't seen in any television show before and I doubt I will again.
This isn't a classic cop-and-mystery show. All I can say is give this a good chance, at least until the end of the second episode.
Driven by De Beers' manufactured value of diamonds, the story follows a robbery being investigated by police and an ugly insurance woman of some sort.
Maybe it gets better, but it's slow and boring. Maybe I needed to see an extended-length pilot episode. This has John Hurt, but that's not good enough for me. Maybe I should have given this more of a chance, but .. I'm not going to.
- Has scenes spoken in the French language, with English subtitles. It takes place in France, so there are a lot.
Has scenes spoken in the Serbian language, with English subtitles.
A buddy cop series, but with aliens, with overtones of very difficult social topics.
This is surprisingly good, either in addition to, or separate from, the movie. While I didn't particularly like the movie, this series is recommended. Anyone who liked the original movie[doesn't exist] should definitely continue the franchise with this series.
This continues from Alien Nation - (1988 movie), including a story arc.
- I don't know what it is about the series, but it has left a much stronger positive impression than the film.
