Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
Persons Unknown is a surreal mind-game of a series centering on a group of strangers who awaken in a deserted town with no memory of how they arrived, only to realize that there is no escape. Watched by omnipresent security cameras, their every attempt at leaving the town’s borders is thwarted by mysterious forces. The only source of information is fed randomly through remotely controlled televisions, and as mistrust begins to breed, every alliance will be tested. Persons Unknown is from Oscar-winning writer Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects) who executive-produces with Heather McQuarrie and Remi Aubuchon.

Slightly out of order!
iTunes has them out of order slightly.
They should be watched in this order:
"And Then There Was One"
"Shadows in the Cave"
At first I didn't know what to expect but now I'm just wanting to watch more. Hopefully NBC is smart enough to keep this show alive. One of my top shows for the summer.
I saw half of it on NBC and loved it. I liked it so much I wathced it again online and finished it. It's really suspenseful and I would recomend it to everyone. I can't wait for the next episode and hope that I am able to watch the whole season.
