Worth a Watch
23 November 2013 | by ACCriticSee all my reviews

The pilot was surprisingly promising. This is an underdog story, but the underdogs are app programmers in a world of it-geeks. So, there is no traditional juxtaposition of geeks versus jocks. I really want their app to succeed. That, in and of itself, makes the first episode a success, because that's a hook (something that Amazon's other original series, Alpha House, unfortunately lacks). There were story-lines tangential to the main one that I was much less interested in, but this is just a beginning. Plus, the acting and writing were adequately amusing, though not laugh-out-loud funny. Hopefully, the show will find its focus and heart through the humor as it develops.
