Fast paced mystery thriller!

This is a fast paced mystery thriller with a twist! Great acting all around and a storyline that keeps me coming back for more!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The crime series combines a unique premise with predictable narratives to create a viewing experience that's both edgy and entertaining. Despite some of the less sophisticated stories it offers, the show is still compelling enough to keep you watching, thanks to the plot twists, fast-paced action, and use of James Bond-like technology.

The gangster-like Las Vegas backdrop is fun, but it's the chemistry between the characters that makes it easier to accept and enjoy the implausibility of the circumstances. It's easy to get absorbed in this world, and you can bet that most who do will find it fun.
