Why do shows about intelligent people have to be so stupid?
23 September 2014 | by ksgossSee all my reviews

I bought into the trailers; I was interested. But this show was a mess.

I wasn't expecting fine drama, but I was hoping for something reasonably intelligent (like a Person of Interest or Numbers). Instead it was just insultingly dumb. Bad clichés, tired plot devices, and magical techno wizardry that didn't even make sense.

We will only get the quality of programming that we demand. If the networks keep providing this rubbish, and we watch it, then we have no one else to blame. I have to assume that the people who spent their time and effort making this show realized how insulting it was to the viewers' intelligence. So, if you watch it, you'll get what you deserve.
