I've heard people complain that this plot has been done 100 times before after only watching one or two episodes. I don't know about you, but when I watch a new show, in the first couple episodes, I can usually pick out things that have been done 100 times! But then it got better & in my opinion, the Crossing does too.
So Steve Zahn plays a Sheriff named Jude in a small town (I don't remember what it's called). Jude has a past & to make a long story short without the spoilers, he was in a big city, some stuff went bad, so he comes to idyllic small town where nothing usually goes bad & things go bad.Admittedly, that's been done a few times.) Of course Big Brother Government shows up & takes over. It turns out that these people aren't illegal aliens trying to escape a war torn situation. They're actually Americans trying to escape a war torn situation. This show was cancelled but I still don't want to spoil anything so I can't say anything more about where the people are from or how they got there.
There's a lot going on in this show, which is why I wish people would've stayed with it. Every episode, something new happens or we find out something new about someone. It's mystery, sci-fi, action, comedy, love story, and drama all in one show. I'm very disappointed that more people didn't give it a chance.
