It looks like critics couldn’t stop singing praises for the intriguing storyline and the compelling drama of the show.

On the other hand, Linda Maleh of “TV Insider”, finds the storyline of the show unique and original, “In a television landscape full of franchise fare and reboots, it’s refreshing to watch such a unique original. It’s an ambitious premise, but the show seems to have a good handle on what it wants to accomplish”.
