The real trouble with shows like this; nothing ever gets resolved. Alias was a bit like this. The whole writing effort is directed at immediate sensations and hooking the audience so they'll continue watching. The characters are just caricatures -- you never get any feeling that any of these actors ever do what they do with any sense of purpose. Is having more money...and that is all they seem to want...really a convincing purpose for any and all of the bad activities they are putting so much effort into (it would be easier to rob a bank or manipulate investment outcomes, first and foremost, than to just win a bid on foreign dam project; I mean, there is a lot of drudgery and real hard work in building a dam.)
After a while, just like in Alias, an intelligent audience will grow bored with deliberate cat-and-mouse antics and walk away feeling manipulated with no pay-off, punch-line, or purpose in sight. The bad guys are so maligned in this show that it's unconvincing that they would or even could conduct themselves in any civil way -- and this is because their characters don't have a lot of depth (or depth of purpose).
I was tempted to give this show three stars -- Melissa George is always well-worth a watch -- but I just couldn't do it.
