The show mostly needs to figure out what it is about.

The acting is usually alright, most characters are at least conceptually okay and there definitely has been some proper worldbuilding.
The plots are extremely predictable but even that does not have to be a bad thing.


Right now, however, this show constantly, randomly bounces around in regard to what kind of story it wants to tell.

It tries to be some free-spirited college thing, then abruptly shifts into some kind of espionage/mystery theme, usually ending in some poorly executed action scenes, just to go back to being some college thing. Weird teen drama subplots awkwardly mixed in.

Absolutely nothing here feels organic.
Which is a shame, because as said before: there are a few decent shows that could have been made from this instead.

That's a good summary. smile Too bad nobody had those insights before starting production...

Yep.

I think the scriptwriter is kind of awful. The cast has to say some really dumb things, and act in dumb ways.
