What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

20 minutes into episode one and all I can think is, "this show wants to be 'Gone Girl' sooo badly!" It's laughable. Having characters speak in code and half sentences does not make for mystery, just annoyance. The brilliance of "Gone Girl" was that we KNEW he was guilty when he wasn't, so here, we KNOW he's innocent and then he won't be? That's dumb. I might force myself through the last 20 minutes, but idk... You want surprises, twists, reveals and deep characters? Try "The Missing."
