Storyline

In the New Mexico desert, scientist, Vera Ivanov (Shantel VanSanten) watches in as a mysterious object falls to Earth. It explodes, and sends out a shockwave which briefly stops her heart. But Vera isn't the only one affected: she's instantly connected to 4 others, all of whom had also collapsed, only to come back to life hours later. A mysterious figure - known only as "the man" (Diogo Morgado) comes and offers Vera the chance to be reunited with her kidnapped son, if she helps him with one complicated task. Now, this group might be the only hope for preventing the impending end of civilisation... or causing it. Written by Soumik Ghosh

A Little Too Simple
4 May 2015 | by juniperbug1980See all my reviews

I want to like this show, I really do. But I can't. It's a little too simple, like a rough first draft. The characters are so far one dimensional and each of them has a one track mind. Of course there is the Latino who is into drugs (but really has a heart of gold), the mystical African American who knows all (and what is up with the clichéd African music attached to her revelations?), the scientist who does not want to believe in anything but science (and of course there must be a scientific explanation for God). It could be good, but instead of delving into the mythology, or really exploring these characters, it stifles itself with surface meaning. Oh, and the glowing eyes, a little over that already. Surely there is another way of showing that someone is evil than changing their eyes?
