    I really like this show. The international flavor of the show is wonderful ! I hope it is not cancelled and continues thru August! One of the more intelligent crime shows on! I hope that it is renewed for a secon season.

  2. Jennifer says

    Felt tepid in initial episode . Thought this week was great . Can’t wait for next weeks episode and my husband loves it.

  3. Janet says

    I love this two-part episode, and that they have more time to develop the story. This show has a unique quality to it and feels like you are watching a movie.

    Its refreshing to watch a crime drama that is not run of your mill and set in other countries. I do agree that they should not have killed off the one female lead in the pilot. Her character was interesting. Hopefully even if the ratings are borderline it is renewed and given a chance to garner more viewers. Sidenote: It is so nice to see William Fichtner again. He looks great for 57, a “natural” great. I wish more actors, would realize that aging gracefully is more sexy then the Hollywood cut, slice, and stretch.

    Awesome show with great storyline and very scenic too. I hope that it is renewed as I love it and the characters!

  6. Lauren says

    Sure to be cancelled. Hard to hear/understand what the characters are saying, and the 2 leads are geriatric.

  7. M Diver says

    Terrific show and very well acted different and edgy. Keeps you on the edge of. Your seat weekly. Hopefully network gurus will renew instead of another comedy or reality show.

    Keep it coming!

    In this day of over glorified, over marketed reality shows & the like, none of which allow you to actually UTILIZE your cerebral capacities, here is a beautifully written scripted marvel worth one’s time! Magnificent cast of international actors alongside veterans the likes of Mr’s. Fichtner & Sutherland. The scripts so far are SO good, your eyes won’t move from your television screen. Kudos to NBC for bringing such a sophisticated hour to prime time. Now please, please, allow it to develop a foundation, & then soar.

  9. Etta says

    loved the pilot
    2nd show was OK
    3rd one looks super

    Why did they kill off the only female lead with some unique personality traits and some depth.???

    Will keep watching
