Full Disclosure: Having been proven the primary eight episodes of this new Canadian-produced SyFy sequence upfront, I can’t give away any main spoilers in these weekly episode previews, so I apologize upfront if this preview appears a bit too truncated.
What I can say is whereas I discovered the pilot to be well-shot and carried out with some enjoyable twists and revelations, it was additionally dramatically inert. The look of the present is slightly too bleach bypass for me. The texture was portentous with out a lot to permit me contained in the internal world of the impressively designed characters. Like a whole lot of style pilots, I discovered it tough to get into the story and join with the primary characters and their points, although the premise does have extra promise than the ultimate product delivers upon. A number of the these points I had had been solved by an intriguing closing shot and revelation that made me wish to persist with the sequence for some time (nope, not spoiling it!). Subsequent episodes do reward this dedication as I’ll report as I proceed to preview this season.
