Advertisements I am getting more than a little tired of the flashbacks. I'm always much more satisfied by a linear story telling; after all, that's how I live my life. Sure, I can appreciate the history in a flashback to fill in the blanks. But much of the early going in these scenes creates a jumble, a mish-mash of scenes that left me wondering at times: is this past? or present? I suspect that production staff did it that way to give the series a bit of an "arty" feel, in an attempt to make the series seem deeper and more meaningful. But it's not, folks. It has a good looking cast, and they have super powers. Start being super, and stop being moody and confusing.
