What is it? Another Bad Robot show (they’re the Dick Wolf of sci-fi and fantasy television at the moment), this time it’s the story of a young girl born with special abilities she can’t fully comprehend or control. The people trying to protect her turn to someone outside their inner circle: a wrongfully convicted death-row inmate who must be broken out of prison. While he’s initially suspicious of his new charge, the two soon bond and must fight the evil forces that have their own plans for the girl. It sounds a little formulaic, but this was created by Alfonso Cuaron and features Sienna Guillory and Kyle MacLachlan among the cast, so we’ll give it a chance.
