It reminds of "Mutant X".
Even the doctor guy reminds me of Adam Kane, the way he talks and interacts with the characters. I think the angry, testosterone character needs some work--he's inexplicably grouchy, seems to sweat a lot, and his super human strength was not an advantage in the first story, except for when he moved the car--I hope they fix him and make him more credible.
I think this is a show that could have used a 2 hour pilot in order to better flesh out & develop the characters, give us some background so we could care more. Character development needs to be balanced with action scenes if you are going to capture an audience for the long run.
But I am desperate for good SciFi, so I will be hopeful and watch it. However, the SyFy channel, and much of American television the past few years, is mostly just a frustrating viewing experience; there is such bad writing and such an erratic schedule for so many new programs, why bother watching at all until you know if a program will return next year. (Then when they get some really good shows, like "Terriers", which was simply awesome, or "The Good Guys", which was very campy but hysterical--they cancel them. They bump around the schedule every week, no one knows when a program will be on, and then cancel for low ratings. Really, it is ridiculous to go to all of the trouble to produce a show and cancel it after 1 or 2 episodes, as has happened 4-5 times this year--what a waste!) ...my own private OT rant there...
