Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Treadstone is a thriller series that's spun-off from the Jason Bourne movie franchise. It's got lots of action-packed sequences that are both violent and bloody. Endless action sequences include fist fights, knife attacks, being injected with poison, strangulation, and shootings. Bloody wounds, ranging from gun shots to dismembered fingers visible. Smoking and prescription drug use is visible, and swearing includes "hell" and "f--k."
Is It Any Good?
This overly-packed spin-off, based on Robert Ludlum's popular spy novels, offers viewers a chance to explore the beginnings (and current operations) of Jason Bourne's fictional world. The characters, especially CIA deputy director Ellen Becker (Michelle Forbes) have great potential, but the bad writing keeps any of them from having any substance in predictable, orchestrated scenes. This, combined with flashbacks, creates a story so confusing that even the most die-hard Bourne fans will find it difficult to follow. Some folks may find it entertaining, but Treadstone lacks the depth and suspense that the franchise is known for, which is pretty disappointing.
