    There's some interesting cheek to the pilot, particularly the villain, but rote directing and too-serious acting muffle the fun. [14 Mar 2014]

    The story is sweaty with provocative, post--al-Qaeda, post-Snowden security anxieties--drone warfare, abused surveillance, and secrecy--but the treatment so far is superficial and sensationalistic.

    Clunky dialogue, clich├ęd relationships, and an escapist action-flick aesthetic combine to subvert the ambition for gritty realism. It requires stronger vision and voice, as well as more distance; it can't decide whether to be likable or prickly.

    It's a brazenly cloned Children of Men, raised dull. [18 Jul 2014, p.61]

    Alas, the show's sophomore season--which tracks the consequences of McAvoy's and his team's interconnected, uncorrected blunders--hits the ground slumping in its first four episodes.

    Fleming sketches the inspirations for Bond and also indulges the criticisms of Bond (misogynistic, brutish) via his boorish creator (played by Dominic Cooper). Yet there's little depth to Cooper's rake, and the female characters are Bond-girl problematic. [31 Jan/7 Feb 2014, p.96]

    The series needs more brains--and more authenticity.

    The clumsy crosscutting between story lines, soapy score and romance, plus heavy-handed writing make for a clunky, sometimes silly affair.
