the name of the series says a lot about it. mostly that it can be boiled down to the shtick of the series – each season is 24 episodes long and each episode covers (in supposed real-time) one real hour. beyond that the series doesn’t offer a whole lot. there’s some entertainment value and some nice twists and turns along the way, but ultimately 24 episodes is just too many to sustain the suspense and attention level. there’s very little ebb and flow. very little character development (how could there be?). we decided to stick the first season out and not go any further, especially after hearing that the first season is the best.
the world as depicted in this season is a pretty ugly dystopia. everyone is out to get you. no one can be trusted. noir-ish.Watched on TV
