Can't see spending the same on these ½ time shows as a normal 42-44 min television series. These are only slightly longer than a webisode of 15 mins. I think SyFy needs to think this through a bit more. This series at $1.50-2.00/episode makes sense. The 'Season Pass' should be perhaps $18.00. But $25.00 spent on the equivalent of a 6hr min series of this quality…is a bit pricey in my opinion.
Not a bad series for SyFy. The writing is OK, but predictable. Nothing too offensive, but please, must we always be given samples of alternate gender-confused lifestyles? Does this really boost ratings? Well, a bit of lowbrow content frames is becoming normal for SyFy, but it only tends to eliminate older audiences who were — let's remember — the first sci-fi generation. Is this wise?
We'll see how this fares down the line, but in this case a price reduction is warranted and may make the difference. Caveat Emptor.
So far meh
If the first episode is going to set the standard for the show, I would pass on the rest. To start off the introduction and description of the show is not helpful. The acting was adequate, the sets and costumes look nice enough. The writing and acting did not make me care about the characters and what happened to them. The fight scenes of the first episode were good but nothing to make it worth watching.
Poor all around
Poor special effects, poor sound mixing, poor writing. This TV series isn't worth your time. It's too bad because the basic idea if properly done would be good.
