SciFi.com: Science Fiction Movie and TV Reviews
Oh, man … I loved this show when it aired in UPN’s fledgling season (kind of ironic that it would be released at the same time UPN is closing its doors and joining with the WB to become the CW network).

I still can’t believe they cancelled this one. If this had been on an established network, this show would have been a hit, instead of killed off in its first season.

The ONE thing I appreciated about it being cancelled is that the creators were given enough notice to actually complete the story, though in the last few episodes, so much is revealed that it felt rushed and unnatural.

Still… I’m gonna watch it again!

The review on SciFi.com gave it a “B”. Maybe the experience of watching on the DVD is different, but I would have given this series a solid “A” if not an “A+”. They said:

Unfortunately, the show too often pulls the rug out from under the viewer so that no character is ever above suspicion, no story can be taken at face value, and paranoia reigns. It’s one thing to get inside the character’s head and understand his situation, but for the purposes of storytelling, it undermines the viewer’s confidence in what they are seeing and prevents any true investment in the show or the characters.

I completely disagree with that. I was completely sucked in to this guy’s life. I HAD to watch this show. I scheduled my week around it (which is admittedly sad, but there you go).* I don’t think it was possible for me to be more invested in the main character.

This show was easily as addicting as 24. It’s a shame it wasn’t allowed to live up to it’s potential.

———-
* Yes, those of you who know me think you’ve seen me schedule my life around shows like 24 and others. Trust me. I’m different now. I was much more stringent about it with this show. It was very pathetic.
