The sole appeal upon which Falling Water relies is mystery, and I'll admit that after watching I do want to learn the answers to the questions the plot has posed. But I don't wish for the answers so much that I'll sit through another hour.

The idea of dream-traveling isn't new - see 1984's Dreamscape - but this is a good-looking and intriguing reworking of the premise.

Falling Water is a hollow puzzle box. It is a twisting, turning show that centers on dreams but completely loses the required balance of a series like this one: don't just present new questions, give us a few answers too.

The performances are solid and the production values also make the grade under the direction of show-runners Gale Anne Hurd (who spent a season on The Walking Dead) and Blake Masters (Brotherhood).

If you're feeling burned TV series after TV series that plants a central mystery and then dances around it for too long to sustain interest, proceed here with cautious optimism.

Intriguing but irritatingly opaque, this drama traffics in dreamy imagery and surreal plot developments that seem cobbled together from other mysteries.
