Like Shots Fired, this one’s straight-to-series, and hopes to continue Fox’s trend of successful event series revivals like 24: Live Another Day and the X-Files. It’s comfortingly fast-paced. A strong central mystery, and plenty of drive. But it does raise a lot more questions than it answers, and Lincoln’s paranoia can be a little frustrating.
It’s hard to imagine this not grabbing eyeballs at least early on. Will it be able to keep people hooked? The pilot creates the sort of expectations that require significant payoffs each episode. I’m curious to see how this plays out.
