No its nothing like the time travel on lost. It's Billy Bob thorton as a lawyer taking on a big law firm and uncovering some jacked up shit. I don't want to give it away. I think it's good, not sure what the guy above doesn't like about the writing.

So I'm on ep 4. What I don't understand is
Spoiler:
why can't they settle? Why would all that bullshit about fuel and the pentagon have to be in the settlement?

I watched this. The plot and show really petered out over the second half of the series in my opinion.

Wouldn't recommend. It's not awful but there are so many better options right now, from what I hear.
