Suspense.
Unpredictable.
Challenging premise.
Well acted.
Well written.
Good character development.
Sympathetic characters.

My wife turned me on to this one, when she missed the first five episodes because of an errant DVR setting. Because of my schedule, I have to binge-watch.

I do not watch much television because of the soap-opera nature of many series, and because I am a grad school student. This one is in the same class as "Jericho", "24", "Heroes", and "Lost" with regard to its writing, acting and directing.

An exciting ride that never stops. The bad is good and the good does bad for good reason. Hard to tell where the line between good and evil is.

Crisis isn't absolutely perfect, but it is much better than much of the pablum that has been passed off as drama/action on TV lately and is leaps and bounds better than the never ending deluge of "reality" shows.

As a fan of political dramas, I decided to give "Crisis" a try because it looked like a very interesting premise. Plus, being an X-Files junkie, I was curious about Gillian Anderson's return to network TV. Those assumptions did hold...for about two episodes. After that, unfortunately, the show turns into a standard crime procedural lacking any sort of "new ground".

After the first two episodes of "Crisis", I thought that I had found the next great political drama. A group of high-society prep students on a school field trip (one being the son of the President of the United States) are kidnapped and held hostage. It is very interesting to see the different dynamics between the students and how they all react a little bit differently to the situation. Even the heavily-advertised Gillian Anderson return is a hit, as her character adds a toughness angle to the show that seems intriguing.

Sadly, that is where the innovation of this show ends. For the next 3/4 episodes, it turns into a complete procedural. It has the stereotypical "one male, one female F.B.I. agent" (played by Lance Gross & Rachael Taylor) premise, and follows a "one parent of a hostage each week" approach to storytelling. It is sad, because had the show-runners been able to focus on the relationships between the teen hostages themselves, THAT is where the interesting material was. As soon as the focus shifted to the parents, it became tedious and un-inspiring. Even Anderson's character has been pretty much in invisible since those first couple episodes.

I compare "Crisis" to a show like "Intelligence" on CBS.

Pretty good season with an interesting twist revealed early on. We let shows build up on the DVR and then watch them back to back. Just when we started to watch them, NBC announced the cancelation. Pretty disappointing, but we'll finish the season.

I'm but echoing another person's review since he was spot on. If they had kept the parents mostly out of it & focused on the kids, the race to find them it probably would not have been canceled! What the parents did to "rescue" their children was crazy unbelievable! The Asian spy mother was the worst one. I almost stopped watching at that point but was close to the end so I kept on & I wish I hadn't. The parent/abductor went on & did some totally laughable last minute things that were so wacko that it insulted one's intelligence! Especially taking out one of his molars then screwed open the tooth that let out a gas that overcame his drivers but not him....because he held his breath!! Then he put some kind of poison on his finger (that didn't kill him) but when the first Lady touched the same poison she died of a bleed to her brain! Who did the terrible writing on this show? It feels like the first 5 shows were written fairly well, then it felt like the writers were a bunch of kids let loose to do anything to wreck the ending! Was it because they found out the show was dropped & they did everything they could to punish the audience or whoever? How did the brilliant Gillain Anderson & the redheaded actor who was so wonderful in "The Unit" get sucked into this cartoonish production? Maybe they just read the script to the 5th show & stopped there. It was a real tease. Loved the concept but the writers let us down.
