Watched just the pilot episode so far. My opinions are similar to yours. I hope it is not the same melodrama that we usually see with such story lines.
This series has been a big disappointment. I had the belief that after decent funding, the quality of the local shows would go up, but the gulf between the direction + acting from here vs what we been seeing internationally has gotten highlighted. I am hoping that they did some superb blunders while choosing the team.
This is an 8 ep season and unless they have a second season in tow, the finale seems to be very predictable-
The police officer fakes going on a holiday trip, murderer downs his guard and gets caught.
