gave it a college try
Burton (David Ajala) is the head of security for the Firm dreaming of The Woman in Red (Anna Wood). Tess (Lizzie Brocheré) dreams of giving birth but she can't remember and there are no records of it. Taka (Will Yun Lee) is a NYPD detective with a catatonic mother. These three strangers have collective dreams which connect them to each other and a conspiracy cult about a boy with mysterious worldwide implications. Bill Boerg (Zak Orth) is a rich mystery man who is interested in Tess.
It's a lot of dreams without the imaginative visual intensity of Inception. A good chunk of the show exists in the dreamworld but the TV budget is not up to the task. It's a mystery but at some point, it becomes infuriating. It takes too long to explain anything. It doesn't have any thrills. There is some tension and I do like the actors. I gave it a college try and finished the first season. With so much TV in the world today, this one doesn't make the cut.
ADD I actually gave it a post graduate try. The second season didn't improve my impression of the show. Taka's mother does have a great death scene but it's one scene out of one season. It's not enough. I appreciate the attempt but I am reluctant to recommend this for anyone.
