promising pilot, 2nd episode rather stupid
being in Germany i stumble upon new series by chance. i watched the pilot and thought "wow, this could really become my new favorite drama series", the plot was unusual, the acting of the kid was great and kiefer nicely interpreted the role of a scared, overwhelmed and caring dad without being cheesy. yes - the social workers choice of words and idea of help for the kid is rather odd, but it altogether promised to be a good series. the atmosphere was mysterious enough, the dialogues, colors, pictures, plotting and scenes were well done. then finally the second episode aired. and I'm very disappointed. kiefers dialogues are stupid (he sounds way too much like ctu), the storytelling isn't nearly as good as it was in the pilot (way too easy to guess whats happening) and the social workers skills are with her looks and not with the kid. the pilot had 8,5 stars, the new episode more around 5. i hope it will get back to the intriguing start!
