WATCHED: I've actually had a chance to watch 2 & 1/2 episodes, and found it "interesting" but somewhat ambivalent about what is/was going on ... upon googled-research, I do understand about it being/featuring multiple P.O.V.s ("Points of View") from different characters, but the mystery remains plodding, IMHO. I more likely will not continue to watch this, until maybe later when there are more episodes to binge on, as I have not developed a curiosity enough to follow it on a weekly basis. The trailer showed/shown so much promise tho...
