The writers got confused about their own plot
Verified purchase
What the... Great idea and then they blew it. Did the writers get confused and start throwing things at a dart board to make plot points? There are so many weird holes and gaps. You can probably piece them together to form a partial plot, but don't bother trying. The acting was fine, the characters okay, but man things got weird and not in a good way. It feels like they changed direction of the storyline then found out there wasn't going to be a season two and had to switch direction again. Leaving some half finished ideas and gaps that just left things wonky. They could have cleaned up the end a bit better, more relationship building between the main character and the" not so much love interest." I could tell they filmed a lot more, but it got left on the cutting room floor. So much potential but so much bad plot writing. Wait till it's free on Prime...

Great premise very poor execution
Verified purchase
I really, really wanted to like this show. I gave it my best effort watching over half the season before deciding to give up. Even with it on Netflix I can't bring myself to invest in the time to watch the remaining the shows. The story lines and scenes seemed to be shot out of order to the point that they didn't pick up routine inconsistencies in writing resulting in a story line that was distracting with the conflict. Many of the characters were cliche and overall just grating on the nerves. It's really to bad because the premise of the show has such promise but it was just a mess in the execution.

Interesting but humorless
Verified purchase
Interesting concept and the acting is very well done. I hope it comes back for a second season. I'd like to have a little humor in future shows.

Has some flaws, but I would still reccomend to people who enjoy the supernatural.

Goes a little off the deep end towards the end, but I enjoyed it over all. Well-made, with excellent actors, in a beautiful, unusual setting.

Surprisingly not bad
Verified purchase
That is not a ringing endorsement but the idea behind it is goofy. However, after some rambling, they do manage to pull it together for a different type of ghost story. I like the fact that it is set in Alaskan fishing community -- which to my knowledge has never been represented on television. The acting over all is really good.
