Poor casting and acting with a very slow juvenile story line
19 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

There are some great moments and real potential. For example, the teacher in the Arctic or the episode where the Beast first appears. However, the story lacks grit and so Producers try to spice things up with sex scenes. But as the relationships are dull and unconvincing the sex scenes are just time fillers that irritate. Like commercials for soup while trying to watch the Superbowl.

Episodes drag on without substance or excitement. It smacks of yester year drama that is being regurgitated in low budget form, resulting in a cast of geriatric actors (for this story) without strength or emotion and writers without imagination. Again there is an attempt to cover this under cigarette smoke, drugs and lots of alcohol.... plus more naked uncomfortable looking actors.

The nerdy character Alice Quinn has very little personality so is difficult to feel connected to. Her acting skills are also not great, but seem to improve over time.

The very needy desperate character Julia Wicker feels redundant, like dead wood. Her whole story-line is excruciating to watch.

This show could have been made better if the casting gave us soulful relatable characters and the writers gave us more awe.
