Never cared for it. I didn't like Gorham as the lead (though I've liked him okay in other things), and I didn't find the premise or execution as engaging as it could've been.
Sometimes someone can be a fine actor, but just not a lead actor (and the reverse). Over in UK TV, Julie Graham is a great ensemble cast member, but every time she's cast as the charismatic lead (Bonekickers, Survivors remake)... she's just not got it. There are loads of similar actors on both sides of the Atlantic.
It's hard for me to get a handle on Gorham, though. At first, I liked him in Covert Affairs. But this past season, they took his character in a darker direction, and I began disliking Gorham's performance again, and remembering why I hadn't liked him in Jake 2.0. I guess maybe it depends on the role.
