ratings & reviews

view all
  • The premiere is heavy on set-up and light on action. It's more about mood than plot. Whether that will hold up over 13 hours is questionable. Show More

  • The premise is intriguing, although it's difficult to watch without backseat driving. Show More

  • The real problem with the pilot is not with the situation, it's with the people placed in it. Not only are none of the seven characters particularly interesting, they simply fail to react realistically to their bizarre circumstances. Show More
