persons unknown.. not all of them ..
3 August 2010 | by vero_et_fredSee all my reviews

While slow at first I think this show is a keeper ! better than a "the Prisonner" clone, different than Lost, this show has potential. Are there bad guys in the team ? why are they there etc... the lack of info makes it all the more compelling, but you have to get over the first two episodes... then you're hooked ! It seems you can't defeat the defenses of the town easily. They kill you if you try too hard, and yes, they are underground as well.. but are they in the air ? the delivery of the gas masks by helicopter suggests otherwise.. where is the town ? when they escape for a bit, you can see rolling hills with hand-made hay stacks, the type to be expected in an Amish community or in eastern Europe, or the middle east (arabic speaking taxi driver)...
