Dude wakes from coma after 12 years, with a suntan and at least 2 years of gym, if they can't even make this, so easily done, at least look a bit real, just assume they are to cheap or dumb to care about any detail. Just another show that hopes a collection of Kens and Barbies will keep people watching.

HOLY COW BATMAN! was this produced by J.J.Abrams the king of lens flares...? cos it was used WAY TOO MUCH in the pilot episode, think 'Star Trek' but 50x worse. The episode itself though when I wasnt blinded by those effects was brilliant, a nice sci-fi show to start 2017 off and I hope this will get a season 2 cos it truly deserves it. It kinda reminds me of a mix between Firestarter, Heroes (season 1), Matrix (minus the kung-fu), I hope the rest of the season dont go overboard with the lensflare effect thoguh i'll definitely be watching the rest of this season.

EDIT: Okay just realized it is made by Tim Kring, the queen of lens flares.. just watched the remaining 8 episodes and well.. as a whole, it's a great series with minor flaws, such as acting being a little dodgy at times AND.. the cgi could look a lot better but still, a good watch, bring on season 2.. NOW!

(For Season 1)
1) The guy wakes up from coma and has muscles like that? Really? I get that because of his powers he has no trouble walking and is physically all right, but becoming buff is just too much. They should have thought about that when casting.
2) They rarely show the other side or really explain the powers - if it's supposed to be about two worlds, then at least devote some amount of time telling the story of the other, unknown place, otherwise the viewer has no interest in it. Because of how little was shown and told, except for the little bits and pieces from his flashbacks, I couldn't care about what happened later on in the storyline. Plus, the relationship between Holden and Willa seems unrealistic, because all the time they are talking about how they spent years together in the other world, yet barely anything of that is shown. Overall it felt like the writers hadn't even bothered with actually "worldbuilding" the other world.
3) They tried to not make the show cliche by including jokes about powers and that the stuff only happens in movies. Or responding to "you are the one" with "you did not just say that", but it doesn't excuse the fact that the plot IS FILLED with cliche fantasy.
Conclusion: The satisfaction was average and while characters were all right, they didn't spike my interest.

This show is pretty boring and I struggled to get through the first few episodes. The first time that I watched it, I got halfway through the first episode and I had to stop it because it felt like torture. Several months later, I decided to give it another try, and got up to ep. 5 before I ultimately gave up. I think that the lead characters are weak, and the show struggles to retain my attention or interest. Major flop IMO.

Burkely Duffield as Holden Matthews, wakes up after a 12 year coma and discovers new abilities that propel him into the middle of a dangerous conspiracy.

Of course there are 2 competing factions that were once on the same team. Nothing like family dysfunction. Holden is smack in the middle and being pulled and used by both for their own means.

I'm not sure what it was about this one. I enjoy the genre, but this particular show just doesn't grab me. After the first two episodes I didn't find the characters or the mystery engaging. I felt that some editorial choices were heavy handed, such as the black best friend and the mother's finding of religion.

I might come back and give it a try again sometime when my watch list is lighter, but it's gone for now.

After a few episodes , I think we have a new , really good Sci-fi Show to see this as 2017 ,start off ! Still a bit of being in the Dark and figuring as a song once said : What's Goin' on ? But does look like they will have some different place to go , to find out whats really goin' on !

I really tried to like this series but barely made it through the first season... it started out strong I felt and then it just dribbled down to nothing... not one to watch in my opinion..
