This show has some of the best production values on network TV. The second season storyline is current and relevant since it touches on blind patriotism and the morality of atheism. Having said that, I'm not sure the producers realize that people have a certain degree of tolerance for bad decision-making from protagonists and that they crossed the line in the Nov. 20 episode (Everyone Says I Love You).
Three of the main characters walk into the enemy HQ. All the enemy soldiers who have been trying to kill them and have tortured their friends are unconscious. Yet they walk by them, leaving them armed instead of putting a bullet on each only to have them predictably wake up and restart their pursuit (keeping the father of one of them imprisoned, as far as she knows). I realize that killing off a lot of the enemy is dramatically problematic, but it's even worse to have stupid protagonists in a drama about the dangers of science and fanaticism.
The main characters have never been as smart as their backgrounds would suggest they should be, particularly Rachel and Aaron. But, one would expect at least some level of strategic capacity from a former general and a former defense contractor.
This show used to be a 7-8. Now it's a 5.… Expand
