    The show seems faster, brighter and more entertaining than most of the serials that beat it to the punch this fall.
  2. An action-packed adrenaline rush.

    A pretty nifty, if completely insane, suspense/conspiracy/ chase/road adventure.
  4. 60
    The show... can easily be enjoyed simply as a fairly proficient thriller, pushing the kind of buttons that Alfred Hitchcock used to push with such films as "North by Northwest" -- although here they're pushed with much less artfulness and finesse.
  5. 40
    The problem is, at the end of the pilot, one simply doesn't care enough about Jay and Tyler to go on the lam with them each week.
  6. 40
    After 24, Lost, Heroes and Prison Break, prime time is overstocked with such sprawling, demanding plots.

    I thought this show was as entertaining as "24" if not more so and more realistic, I hope it will continue this fall.

    This show is terrible. The characters have been idiots from the start of this predictable and very unbelievable plot against them by unknown This show is terrible. The characters have been idiots from the start of this predictable and very unbelievable plot against them by unknown forces of evil. How unimaginative can the creators of these shows be? Does anyone writing for tv have an original idea anymore? Expand
