Too many flash backs at times it's hard to keep up. I doubt kids would like this series.

Surprised at the age recommendation

Less than 20 minutes into the first episode a couple met on a plane, had a drink, shared a few words, and the got busy in a car in the airport parking lot. I can't speak for the rest, we turned it off and sent my 14 year old daughter to wash her eyes out with bleach. Reading the previous reviews we thought it would be fine. Sorry, but I'm really not sure when girls like this became good role models.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (12 ):

The intriguing series relies on a flashback-driven story style to purposely raise suspicions about cast members and highlight clues that will determine the identity of the actual "bad guy." It also underscores many of the preconceived notions that currently exist about different communities and the alleged threats they pose to the country.

While many of the events are predictable (some would argue implausible), what makes the series interesting is how the recruits interact with each other while slowly revealing themselves to the audience. Ultimately, the show is an entertaining puzzle that will force you to pay attention to details, and leave you mistrustful of everyone.
