After all the hype I wasn't dissapointed.
I'm definitely not sure exactly who are the good guys and the bad guys.
The backstories and intrigue are great. Who's behind this in Washington?
May concern is, this could be a two hour movie. Can they keep up the suspense and character debelopment for a full season or more?
I hope so, becuae I'm tuning in next week.
