The first season was hard to follow but after a few episodes I really got into it. The acting was terrific as well as the plot.
But the 2nd season fell apart & was boring. I finished it out but I can see why it was cancelled.
It's an okay series, the characters are pretty flat overall. The dynamics aren't really intriguing at all. And interaction between characters changes from episode to episode without reason. I agree that it not even remotely close to 24. It's not horrible, but I wouldn't recommend it.
