Jesus... how did this happen.
12 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

This TV show had so much potential. It has great, beautiful actors. Set in the best technological booms of our time. But it has so many flaws.

Unrealistic time progression within the story line. Constant montages after montages. Main characters that repeat mistakes then they question themselves and expect to get different results. The drama that the characters go through is always in the same mood and its so stretched out. There is a point where the characters know themselves so well but they still question themselves.

I really like how the characters acknowledge a problem, they try to fix it and while they are fixing the problem something happens, followed by a speedy keyboard typing montage with punk music playing in the background. This formula gets repeated throughout the entire show. It becomes so predictable that I can't help but ruin it for myself. The things that happen to the characters becomes annoying because the conflicts and issues the characters deal with can easily be avoided.

Mackenzie Davis is a beautiful actor and she deserves a better role. Lee Pace is a beautiful actor and he deserves a better role. Actually they should get married in real life.

I'm still gonna watch the show but I watch it just to turn off my mind.
