The Nine

The Nine opens with situations leading into a hostage crisis, and then leaps ahead to the end of the ordeal and follows the hostages on with their lives. It is at heart a mystery story, because it becomes quickly clear that a lot of Interesting Things happened during the crisis, and that there’s More To This Than Meets The Eye. The series will be in good part about unveiling those mysteries.
Which is the problem.
I’m not saying I’m not at all curious about what happened, but I’m certainly not sufficiently curious to invest my time in watching this for seasons, or hoping it avoids cancellation long enough to reveal significant secrets. The journey is not that enjoyable.
