It's promising, this said, the most promising Syfy pilot - hell, science fiction pilot - I've seen since Caprica. I'm hoping Kevin Murphy does a better job showrunning this than he did that, but who knows?
He at least stands a chance of doing so. Murphy was, after all, brought in rather late in the game to run Caprica
and to replace Jane Espenson. By the time he was in charge, the damage was already done.
