American Odyssey (TV Series 2015
I normally avoid serial TV as they can really be up or down but after experiencing the wonder and gripping storytelling that is "How To Get Away With Murder" I wanted to find a series to watch this spring so I could repeat the water cooler fun of that show. I tried TNT's Dig and that was an abysmal failure. I was really looking forward to American Odyssey. What's with the endless commercials, I ended up watching huge chucks of House Hunters International, the 5 minutes plus commercial breaks were ridiculous. I liked the story of the female soldier, her commander Treat Williams comes across as guilty as sin. The lawyer seemed semi interesting as was his story arc with the drone operator. The rich kid activist ... stupid as dirt over the fake female reporter. Hope the story improves in the next couple of episodes or it's back to Discovery's Naked and Afraid.Three families are torn apart when a stranded female soldier, a disillusioned corporate attorney and a disrespected political activist are pulled into the same shocking international military conspiracy.
