So I tried watching this as I had set my DVR to record the show and I couldn't make it passed the first episode. It started out ok with the kid taking off in the night and set the intrigue level pretty high.....but then Anna Paquin's character, Annie, came on the screen and it lost me. I usually like her but in this it just didn't work. I could barely understand her half the time. Not sure if it's the tone of her voice or what but it sounded like she was speaking from a constricted throat...all muffled. I also found her facial expressions to be never changing, regardless of the situation. I'm not sure if she's always been a mediocre actress or this is just the first time I noticed it. Perhaps this is just the wrong show for her. I don't know. The other issue I had a hard time with was the things she did as a detective. My family is in law enforcement and this was just kinda ridiculous. I mean, I get it's just a show....but come on. There was also just too much going on. It started off with a missing kid and it just kept wandering away from that and instead focused on Annie's past. It really didn't interest me and I found myself really not liking her character at all. I know it's only one episode, but it was enough for me to determine that it I wasn't going to like it so I deleted the rest of the episodes off my DVR. Too bad too. It really looked like it could have been a great show.
