It was really good, but it has "HBO" written all over it.
The show I can see being amazing for 2-3 thirteen episode seasons, but that is it. A season on the island, a season planning on sneaking into the USA, a season clearing their names. That format doesn't work on Network TV. Actually this show would have been fun following Homeland on Showtime.
On ABC it should have been a miniseries, and it would have been a damn good one. The little plots of the impeachment, the secretive soldiers, the goodie soldiers always for the USA, the island drug lord. There is a lot going on, and I like it, I just don't see it lasting.
