The Crossing

ABC 2018

Refugees from a war-torn country start showing up to seek asylum in an American town. Only the country these people are from is America and the war they are fleeing is 250 years in the future. The local sheriff with a past, a federal agent and a mother in search of her missing refugee daughter drive this allegory with a surprising conspiracy at the center.

    Cool premise/context, but poor execution, script, acting, screenplay

    I wish another season was coming!

    Cancelled too soon, Zahn was pretty good in this. I would have liked to see more of Dr Forbin in S2 as well. Had its issues overall, some characters too many and was a bit too slow in the middle. Yet enjoyable and the finale closes S1 well enough to give it closure. Among my favourite new shows of the past few seasons.

    I don't mean to cast shade, if you love this show, good on you. But in the spirit of democracy, I must say the pilot episode was for me, a special "white rice on white bread with a glass of water"kind of bland. I wished for more as I think society does need a good parable to remember that immigration has always been an extremely positive part of human development across the millennia. The current culture of immigration phobia exhibited by some folks is simply ignorant and uninformed. And ultra ironic coming from Americans... That said, I find it sad that conventional US broadcast corporations like ABC are probably just not capable of making content which is artistic and fresh, given the risk it would present to corporate interests. They instead study your purchased facebook data, cynically calculate and subdivide demographics with scalpels, and double check their ROI calculus to ensure profits are maximized as they package up the population and sell it to other corporate advertisers. I suspect that is how this show was written. It's how all ABC shows are written.

    Just finished watching the pilot episode. Basically it's The 4400 intermixed with Odyssey 5 (which both shows I enjoyed) with a bit of a spin. Felt the ending was a bit predictable but I still liked it, although I am easily entertained lol. Interested to see where it goes so, hopefully ABC does a good job weaving the mystery along with the shenanigans of the first group of mystery travelers.

    Had potential but just didn’t make the cut

    This is pretty good, interesting idea unfolding, decent acting and production values, hope it keeps up the intrigue.

    Nothing new in this show that incorporates the classic clichés of the TV series in which humans are genetically enhanced and time travel. In addition to the unoriginal plot, what I find very weak is the flat and banal interpretation of the actors, with characters that are not very interesting and lacking in thickness. I left her after the first 2 episodes.

    Promising start, but becomes too boring by the middle of the first season.

    The show started out feeling bland and derivative -- very reminiscent of shows like the 4400 and The Returned. I only kept watching it because I'm from the Pacific Northwest, where it takes place. But something happened around Episodes 4 & 5 that revealed a new layer and the show suddenly became much more intriguing. Hoping they can keep up the mystery and suspense, but I can see it getting convoluted fairly quickly. That may not come until a Season 2, though, if it makes it that far.
