A non fallacy review
30 November 2016 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

After three chapters, I don't think it really deserves a 10/10, more like a 8/10 or 9/10.

But I see the average rating not being fair and all the top rated reviews that are not even focused on the actual show and just based on fallacies, ad hominem fallacy for example, talking about the changes the original character has suffered through adaptations, or even trying to be literal about some script sentences to say "that's not well researched, I know more about sniping and a .222 can kill 'something bigger than a rabbit', find a better researcher" despite the character meaning that it has the smallest round for sniper rifles thus being more appropriate for a beginner... Even the 2nd top rated review is an entire rant about other reviews!!

After this (big) introduction, I'm going to talk about the ACTUAL SHOW:

I'm a fan of smart stories about spies, conspiracies, victims, smart plots and smart characters. This show gives you all about that and even more.

I can't say it's a masterpiece after only three chapters but it's on the right path. As a fan of TV shows like 24 or Homeland I'm really enjoying this one, specially now that there are not too much outstanding TV shows running apart from Westworld.

The script is pretty good. Nothing new, of course, a conspiracy, an expert sniper as a hero, governments, focus on United States of America, FBI, secret service... But the story it's really well constructed. The main characters are not stupid, and I think we're tired of stupid characters in fiction movies and TV shows.

Of course, Bob Lee Swagger is really smart and kind of "awesome" cliché. But I like to point that also his wife is, and I like to see a female character that is not just a mere accessory as the hero wife. But yeah, the characters are not "perfect", the wife is a mother. And Bob Lee Swagger is smart but he's not unbeatable. Oh, and the bad ones, most of them they are not stupid either! (yeah, that's a surprise). This is the least you can expect about characters working for intelligence, special ops and FBI, right?

The characters have no big complexity yet: They almost seem like good or bad. The good ones are politically correct, classical "hero" character. We could say that bad ones have a bit more complexity, but that's not exploited yet.

Main thing about this show remembers me to Inception. You need to be pretty awake to watch this and notice all the complexity and well developed script. It has a lot of details and you can go back 10 seconds to watch "that" again and think "wow, they really thought about this".

I'm really enjoying this plot, it's smart and it gives you more than enough each chapter to feel like you didn't waste time with filler plots (more on the contrary!) but leaving enough answers for future development and maintaining the interest.

The plot changes are unexpected, at least for someone like me who lets himself to be drawn by the story and enjoys it without prejudices.

8/10 at least for sure.
