What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

This is the series spinoff to the movie of the same name; a movie you're probably familiar with and may have seen. In my opinion, it's well crafted with a good script, decent acting, special effects and plot points. The cast takes a couple of episodes to grow on you, but once they do, you find it easier and more enjoyable to follow the story as it progresses. Characters start to take shape, we get to know the precogs as individuals, their relationship with key members of the MPD, and we gain a deeper understanding of their reasons for preferring to live in anonymity. Almost everyone has a motive here, but it is the looming threat of the three siblings being captured and used again that propels this story. I think it's a pity this show was cancelled just as its potential was growing, but at least it was given a proper conclusion. If you are a fan of Sci-Fi, have seen the movie and enjoyed it, you could consider this a worthy sequel.
