Pretty standard Canadian/SyFy blandness. Storytelling by flashbacks, one of those plots that goes on and on without conclusion. Mediocre acting by the adults and a pretty evident lack of talent from the children.
Considering the level of futuristic tech in use, it's surprising all that subversive office activity takes place without the presence or concern for CCTV cameras, except when they're suddenly a thing the writers employ for other subplots.
Ideally, it would be fast paced and have some sort of major plot resolution at the end of the season -- like 24, but in 8 episodes. Maybe if there's a 2nd season, they'll try to pick up the pace. Currently, it's more a mashup of borrowed elements from series past.
