It's a lot like BBC America's Torchwood, just without the wit and a charismatic lead actor.
It's not an embarrassment for the channel, but it doesn't raise the stakes either.
There's little to recommend this dense drama, which recycles a number of familiar sci-fi tropes.
Much of it feels dreadfully slow, not so much moody as stretched for time.
Still, this low-key, low-budget but well-intentioned sci-fi/action hybrid might be of interest to fans of Tapping's earlier work as Samantha Carter on Stargate SG-1.
