Low-level FBI agent, Peter Sutherland, works in the basement of the White House manning a phone that never rings--until the night it does--propelling him into a conspiracy that leads all the way to the Oval Office.
The series begins with a gradual pace, escalating in intensity with each episode. The casting effectively introduces a fresh ensemble of actors, with the notable exception of Robert Patrick. This allows the emerging stars ample opportunity to develop and captivate the audience. However, Robert Patrick's facial appearance seems somewhat unsettling, particularly his eyebrows. As the first season progresses, the protagonists encounter increasingly implausible situations, but this can be forgiven as it is, after all, a television show. The potential for a second season has been skillfully established, and the series is worth watching for fans of espionage thrillers.
