When mysterious wreckage from outer space starts to fall from the sky, an international agency works to figure out where it came from and what is behind it.
Two agents - Finola Jones from Britain and Bryan Beneventi from America - must work together to track down as many pieces of the scattered debris as they can, as each fragment has an unpredictable effect on those who find it, changing their lives in unexpected and dangerous ways.
It's a race against time for the agents to uncover the mystery before outside forces acquire these powerful objects for themselves.
5min opening of main story..
30 minutes of "filler"story to pad the episode,
then 5min closing of main story.. repeat.
On top of that.. if it's a cop/detective/fbi/csi/nas/mi6 show, there must be male and female partners - one which is fastidious and the other which is more aloof or a "rule breaker". I mean.. it's the SAME THING for EVERY show containing any sort of crime drama. This one just happens to be scifi crime drama. But the formula is running STRONG in it.
Or.. is it that the networks STILL haven't figured out that the public is tired of their formula? This formula only really exists on the big 3 networks - ABC,CBE, NBC, Fox does ti once in a while but they don't exclusively rely on it like the others.
The really sad part is the main story, you know that 5min opening and closing, maybe intriguing, But it's RARELY worth sitting through 30 minutes of padding and commercials each episode for that story.. which may never end because they have to keep that going for as long as the show is renewed - or it ends without any conclusion when the show is canceled.
I watched the first episode and man.... is it dripping with their hackneyed formula. And sorry, but the "surprise reveal" (no spoiler) near the end about someone coming back into the country was just such network junk.
All I know is.. either viewers of these formulaic shows are all developmentally disabled with very low IQs... or the network execs are for continually greenlighting the same drivel.

These shows need to be on the cable networks.
What a waste
