Drawn out
13 January 2017 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Spoiller alert. Just in case someone thinks my comments may be a spoiler.

I enjoyed the concept and the acting. After a few episodes, the plot was drawn out much too long. To a point of frustration. Even the last episode of series one, was based on a plot point four episodes beforehand. To keep viewers watching, they need to resolve plot points quicker, rather than make the FBI look like they are so damn slow at resolving something that in real life would have taken one episode. I hope the next series has more speed, more plots and less drawn out. I rated 5 only because of frustration levels. The love interests were a little too soon and if it were real life, the nature of the relationships would not be in good timing, considering the whole of the US government heads were all dead. More focus on rebuilding than office kisses and cuddles.
