I just finished watching season one and I have to say that I rather enjoyed this one. It's not perfect by any means but it was captivating and a great binge watch.
This series definitely had a Syfy channel feel to it and I mean that in a rather negative way. I used to be a Syfy channel fan when it first kicked off but they chose a more bubble gum Sci-Fi route for most of the new programs so haven't watched much lately. This Syfy channel feel along with some sloppy directing were among my top annoyances but it was pretty decent otherwise.
On the positive side, top of the list for me was the fresh and diverse Cast and the great job they did. Burley Duffield (Holden) was annoying at first as he ran around like a confused fool for the first three or four episodes but that played out well for later when he finally snapped out of being such a wuss and properly took the lead for the show.
Swedish actress Dilan Gwyn was probably my favorite of the bunch and she should have a very successful career ahead of her. Other fantastic performances came from Jeff Pierre, Eden Brolin, and a long-time favorite of mine from his Hal Hartley 'Trust' days, Martin Donovan. Oh, and special mention for Peter Kelamis who was an awesome villain.
The Sci-Fi itself was also not that bad. It certainly wasn't groundbreaking or mind-altering but was enough to keep me interested. I look forward to season two, provided there is one.
