One of the tattoos is literally a label "to be delivered" to an FBI agent Kurt Weller -- a badass with a penchant for creative thinking, which we see in his first scene. Someone is thinking here.
If you've seen the trailer, you pretty much have 75% of the pilot episode, but you don't have half the story.
The pacing is very 24 -- a good season, not a bad one. It moves as fast as possible while also jamming in a surprising amount of character along the way, in-between the shootings, bombings, and car chases.
The acting is surprisingly top notch. No, seriously. Jane Alexander pays the most vulnerable badass I have ever seen. When she's falling apart (because hey, guess what, Matt Damon, people don't just take amnesia in stride like a walk in the park) she looks like she's going to crumble. When she's "on," I'm seeing a lot of berserker tendencies... which is probably why she was hired, after all, she did play a Valkyrie in the Thor films. But she has these wide, expressive green eyes that the cameraman has noticed. Yes, she's a plot device, and in any other situation, she might come off as a bit of a Mary Sue, but they way they're playing it just makes her look like a solid badass without making her look like an OP character in an RPG -- mostly because she's not the sole solution to every problem.
Kurt Weller is played by Sullivan Stapleton (300: Rise of an Empire) who comes off as a slightly more cuddly version of Adam Baldwin ... if you can imagine such a thing. Who also has a set of bright green eyes. As Weller and "Jane Doe" both have similar coloring, if they don't capitalize on this in the long run, I will be surprised.
But yes, I like the show. I like the writing -- while not witty, it is at least engaging, and they're FBI, they're supposed to be stiffs. I like the pacing, because I really miss 24. And am curious and care enough about these characters to want to know what comes next in the long run. Strangely enough, I even like the camera angles. Our heroine is nude and topless repeatedly in the pilot, but you see nothing interesting. Just proving that this is not a premium cable program.
In both cases, I have no idea what either of these two groups are smoking, but I'm sure I don't want any.
I've seen both episodes aired thus far, and I look forward to round three.
