Two stars, only for Ashley Jensen.
More plot holes than a wheel of Swiss cheese!

I wanted to love this because it is Patrick Stewart and timely subjects, but it isn't brilliant. It is good, and timely, and was fun to watch. Stewart seems very stiff throughout, and possible if there is a second season we will lean he has Asperger's syndrome or such. I'd still recommend it.

Not good!

The stories are OK but there is almost no action other than the music ramping up while a stunt double for Patrick Stewart runs (meanders) toward another secret location. When asked to do this role he should have quoted Danny Glover from Lethal Weapon and said, "I'm too old for this shit!" (Sorry, PS, I still love you.) His "bodyguard" mostly just stares - open mouthed - while PS explains mundane information that most of the audience already knows. She was much better (or, at least, convincing) in the BBC series Extras. I would be interested in seeing the remake with Rufus Sewell.

An interesting series with topically relevant themes (cloning, biohazards, climate change, government subterfuge). It's always interesting to see Patrick Stewart in a role other than Capt Picard, and to see British locales and characters. Unfortunately, the producers should have paid more attention to the science supposedly underpinning the plot lines: some of the holes are large enough to drive a truck/lorry through.

This program represents a kind of unhappy marriage between the X-Files and CSI. It has Patrick Stewart in it, so there's that. He's always interesting to watch. You never know when he might say "Number One."

One trouble I have with it is that after watching a whole season of this program, I'm still not sure why a giovernment scientist merits a full-time bodyguard (except that they needed a Scully to his Mulder.) I also find some kind of inconsistency in the narrative of every episode, which generally makes me crazy. ("sample everything, everywhere," Patrick Stewart says in one episode; "there's no need to sample that," he says twenty minutes later.)

I've kept watching despite all that, so they must be doing something right. (But I do berate the television on occasion, as a coping mechanism.)

Resurrection: An accidental find of dozens of malformed fetuses leads Hood on an investigation of black market human cloning experiments. // Containment: A viral outbreak associated with the excavation of an ancient burial site leads Hood to a surprising source. // Kryptos: A senior climatologist who works for a privately-funded (mostly by petro-dollars) research institute becomes increasingly secretive, paranoid, and convinced of a conspiracy to suppress his findings. and global warming projections. His personal history with Prof Hood also figures in the plot. //
Miracle: A young boy is cured of a brain tumor, supposedly by local spring water. Yet, cancer patients who flock to the area for a miracle cure get sicker. Hood's investigation points to a government conspiracy and cover-up of what is really happening with the local water supply.
