Day-time tv of the worst kind

It's like they tried to do everything wrong. And succeded.

The initial car chase: Not a single sound is from one of those vehicles. That's when you realize this is going to be really bad.

The rest is just one politically correct cliche after another, from the happy, white middle class family with the oh-so-supporting mother to 'do this for your country'.

This show is aimed at naive under-stimulated stay-at-home soccer moms, dying for just a tiny spark of something interesting to happen in their middle class suburban lives. Wannabe suburbanites in trailer parks may like it too.

Read a book in stead.
