| Like the fun chemistry but the story could use some more work
William Tate (Jake McLaughlin) is a death row inmate. Mysterious Dr. Milton Winter (Delroy Lindo) gives him a choice and breaks him out of prison. Winter puts Tate in charge of Bo (Johnny Sequoyah) who is a little girl with supernatural powers and it turns out she's actually his daughter. Winter leads a team of former colleagues who let Bo escape from the tyrannical Roman Skouras (Kyle MacLachlan). Now the powerful Skouras is using police resources and other supernaturals to track down Bo.

This show starts off with some problems. I never understood why Winter couldn't be more hands on with Tate and Bo. They're thrown to the wolves for no good reason. The good part is that Tate and Bo get to spend time alone together. Their chemistry is so much fun. The other problem is that the world is clueless to the supernatural powers. It is unlikely but more important, the show loses Believe-ability. It's also so derivative to so many other sci-fi shows. It's not a good thing to twist the show to bend the concept to fit this box. I do love the father daughter chemistry. If they could work out a simpler way to get to that point, the show would have worked out better. It's a midseason replacement that got cut rather early. I wish this could have lasted longer.
