I do generally like super hero shows, but this is a good one. just enough of a supernatural element to keep it interesting. 5/5 skulls.
very boring. just drags on with nothing to hook you in. if you have trouble sleeping, put this show on.
BRAVOooooooooo! I am so very glad I found this series!
loved every minute!
James Nesbitt is rarely less than watchable and here he did a fine job of putting flesh on the bones of an otherwise two-dimensional character.
