Don't waste your time on that attempt to a Bible modern fairy tale!!

Jeeezzzz, just watch for the intelligent, high brow and exciting entertainment of it!

Honestly I would deem it pure fantasy, but even as a fantasy story it fails, see how fantasy stories are supposed to be relatable metaphors for life - often coming of age stories.

I found this show very entertaining.

e Raul and how he became a fugitive) are gripping enough for me to look forward to more.

The plot and stories were boring.

evil because it makes for great entertainment on a Friday night and I want to reward myself with a good and entertaining show while I eat my end of the week home cooked meal.

Slow Start, Great Middle, Cliffhanger Ending--I was Hooked .

Nearly everything about it could have been better, but I found it very entertaining anyway.

In the meantime, this cheap religious propaganda uses blunt devices that wreak havoc upon person's senses, & CNS as a whole.

It was a new and intriguing idea and if done well could be really entertaining.

Unfortunately as I got halfway through the season the show began to lose it's way and got progressively predictable.

Actings, CGI, script, directing, everything and everything about the show becomes unbearable.

From the plot it somehow seem going against the Christian teachings (which is a big 'bad code') but it significance or message is entertaining.

the acting is poor, the script is even worse, and everything is so predictable.

She's totally useless and says cliché stuff on religion.

In short, I liked it, I watched it and enjoyed it.

The dialogues between Vera (the scientist as well as an atheist) and Joshua ( a religious preacher) is very compelling as each of them express their opinions regarding destiny/fate/heaven and so on.

In conclusion, if you choose to watch this show, bear in mind that while you may find it entertaining, it has no real basis in the Scriptures.

Cool, but predictable.

At the end of the season there will be a stupid cliffhanger which the writers won't know how to resolve, and then the show will be mercifully canceled and free up the air slot for something far more entertaining, such as a show about optimal ways to fold laundry.

Many ups and downs and intense moments.

You know, the ones where extraterrestrial or supernatural or other-dimensional stuff happens, and then we watch flat and uninteresting characters navigate contrived plot twists for the rest of the season while some sort of "conspiracy" unfolds.

The TV shows are usually terrible, hackneyed, bad acting, the movies are often contrived, preachy.

CW Squeezing out the last of their Cliché Juice.

The only problem is that it's really easy to connect the dots, and kinda predictable.

Overall still, I personally find this enjoyable maybe just as a fan of such story lines.

Just watch and enjoy the fictional action of a world that is doomed :) It's pretty entertaining as far as it goes, as it slowly evolves and you encounter new enemies and allies.

So you have heavy-handed, disjointed, and lazy script writing combined with multiple weakly acted/scripted/directed characters who appear more or less central to the series, and whom you don't care about particularly.

I will agree that the show starts off on a very slow note and there is almost no emotional attachment to the characters to begin with.

This is propaganda pure and simple.

Very intense and in your face.

However, it will drag out because it a simple premise which could have been tackled in movie or miniseries format.

And not particularly well acted, good religious either, its bad acting, emphasis on special effects, slow dumbed down plot are the sort of fare one would expect to be for children, or the slow minded.

But I don't have high hopes for this show, the plot just sounds really boring.

Bland show, bad story, poor acting, cheap excuse for Sci-fi .

Not sure how it got a 7.1. If you are looking for a religious show, i still would not recommend it unless you need some help sleeping, because it's a snoozer.
