    The drama is quite riveting.

    It’s the kind of show that sits with you long after it’s over.

    The pilot is a trip, with Thornton’s character leaving four bodies in his wake--three of whom he dispatched himself. Each meets his end in an unusual, dramatic and somewhat humorous fashion. It’s just the kind of thing you’d expect from a Coen brothers' product.

    The good news is the limited series is just as entertaining.

    What makes Penny click is the chemistry among the characters, especially the psychic and the gunslinger, who end up seducing the viewer with their seductive encounters. They make you forget this is an action show

    The story is an edge-of-your-seat kind of thriller. Clues are dropped, but you never know what’s coming next.

    What’s extremely effective is the relationship (and chemistry) between Sequoyah and McLaughlin. You will find yourself rooting for them and hoping nothing comes between them.

    The humor results from its realism and the blossoming relationship between father and son. Here's hoping this one sticks around.

    Turn is a heart-racer at times. That’s the sign of a thriller done well.

    The thrill comes not from the actual computer building, but the people doing the building. These characters are complex and well-developed, especially Pace’s fiery exec, who is a mesmerizing manipulator.

    It’s been a “24”-like thrill ride so far, with baddies coming at the ship right and left to get their hands on the doc and the in-the-works cure.
