Is this comment stream for women only because that's all I see with Krystal patting everyone on the back. So here's the other side's opinion. The show is over-the-top in its crusade for women in power and that men in power are apparently the worst.Then there's the plausibility problem. Some shows pay respect to plausibility others don't and unfortunately this one doesn't, at all. There were many but the most glaring and objectionable was depicting her suspension. That she was able to slip the approaches of multiple officers - in skirt and heels no less - and coordinate the handoff of a Top Secret document, then got into the White House - which has multiple checkpoints that would snare suspended CIA officers (or should!) - and into the Oval Office was just unforgivable. If you're going to let your star character do that then it's apparent you're going to let her do anything and everything she wants without consequence and that makes this show no better than an animated series on the Cartoon Network. One and done pour moi, sorry gals.
His Fet character is pretty similar to his dark, mysterious Martin Keamy character on "LOST". Kind of surprised they didn't mention his prior series role on "LOST" at all. I guess none of that series' actors are playing that as a strength.
Like Allison, I see too many elements cobbled together from other shows. That's not bad in itself but it just seems to be pandering to so many demographics: there's the counter-estab-nerd, the autistic kid, the cute/vulnerable waitress, the very serious fed, the smart asian girl, the fat comic-relief guy, and the hipster with the hoody and pork pie hat - just like "Heroes" except with super smarts instead of super powers. And because we haven't all screamed loud enough, the computer hacker gets into any system as easy as if it were his own to begin with. If you're going to permit that lax of a plot mechanism then what's the point in watching because you've just signaled that Deus Ex Machina is the ace up your sleeve which is what that ridiculous plane-cable-car scene was. My prediction: early cancellation.
