The premise of this show sounds silly and not one that
would make a whole season, let alone subsequent seasons.
However, I urge you to give it a chance. It's a really good
with many many layers, little stories within the larger
story, lots of secrets, and it keeps moving along, making
you wonder who is who and what is what. It's really well
written and has great acting.
In the show, a woman surgeon, Dr. Ellen Sanders (Toni
Collette), is supposed to do a routine surgery on the
president (James Naughton). However, her family is
taken hostage by some "bad guys" who want her to kill the
president (they have a way to make it look like an
accident). However, not all is as it seems, with anyone in
this show, in any way. The leader of the bad guys is an FBI
agent, and we suspect the others might be, too (and they are
not bad people, as we are shown in the first episode). The
lead FBI agent, Duncan Carlisle (Dylan McDermott) has a wife
in a coma at the hospital, and he has a little girl.
Each of the family members has their own secrets, too.
Then, Dr. Sanders does something unexpected, and it looks
like a battle of wills between her and Duncan.
I really look forward to seeing what else happens in the
show! I don't want to spoil it too much for you by giving
you a lot of details about what is going on with the family,
but it's very nicely done. It's worth tuning in to
