I REALLY wanted to like this show. Strong cast, decent plot, on Netflix... then why is is so poorly implemented? I'm on episode 2 and I don't think I can go any further. If Netflix renews this I'll eat my hat. If a Sidereel member watches to the next episode and writes a review or replies to this one saying it gets better, then I'll watch one more... until then, I'm abandoning ship.

15 minutes into the pilot I started looking at the reviews. That should tell you haw captivating I didn't find this show.

I kind of liked it... The pace was really slow but once Jean starts being really bad the show gets more exciting. That said, super slow burn.

@TelevisionFanboy I don't mind the super slow burn, some shows do that really well, like Rectiy. But this seemed aimless, despite the strong leading cast. Do you think the ending or later episodes make it worth me giving the next episode another shot or do you wish you could get your time back?

I've liked it so much I have watched it twice. The payoff is so-so but the writing is good. Once Jean users her inside info, the whole story opens up. There are all these little moments where her fake identities start to interfere and I found it fascinating. Probably not worth the revisit if you didnt like it though.

Thanks for writing back, I really wanted to like this, so I'll try another episode during the holidays when all the shows are on hiatus.
