    This show needs to find it's substance and has possibilities. Adapted from the mediocre British limited series, this American adaptation has potential but must find a way to write more interesting characters than are so far portrayed. Worth keeping around and better than the abysmal Fringe. I'll look at it again mid-season.

    The writing for the pilot and first episode was awful. The stories made no sense. It was a confused mess. Sorry - but this is a six week run and gone.

    The "science" behind it is a bit absurd, but it's worth an hour of your time...and scientific accuracy isn't really the point with something like this... But, if you are interested in the real science behind the show, check out www.eleventhhourfacts.com These guys have some interesting info on whether human cloning (the topic of the first episode) is really possible.

  1. Hood comes across as brilliant but aloof. Young, meanwhile, seems to be angry, but the source of her anger isn't really explored (we can only assume that babysitting a scientist, no matter how brilliant, is not the job people sign up for when they go to work for the FBI).

    Simultaneously gross and sanctimonious, this histrionic science procedural is mainly a warning against the cloning of TV concepts.

    A bit generic, despite the creepy particulars of this series’ science-based mysteries--think a more mainstream "Fringe."
