Cijfer: 8,5

Jouw mening:
Ik heb de eerste 2 afleveringen gezien en ik moet zeggen dat deze serie me erg aanspreekt. Het is een duidelijke combinatie van The 4400 en X-Men. Mensen met bovennatuurlijke krachten die de wereld moeten redden van mensen met krachten die ze gebruiken voor kwade bedoelingen. Ik vind deze serie wel een aanradertje. thumb_yello.gif
