I'm sure most people were expecting 90% special effects, 2% acting, 4% bad language, 4% violence. We've all seen those mindless shows that keep the eyes busy and the brain empty.
Cam and his friends are seeking answers but they find more questions than answers. Loyalties are not clear and situations question those loyalties constantly--just like real life. Even the bad parts are there but they're not infused with bad language, so you can actually hear the story.
The show is appealing to me because it makes me think. It should be making everyone think. I suspect that a great number of people will change channels merely because they want instant gratification. That's unfortunate. They're missing out on skills that make life easier.
The writing is quite good and the acting generally keeps up. If they have plenty of stories to tell, things can only become better.
