As I posted previously they take the newsreel or news magazine approach. You get nothing but the story itself. There is basically no character development in which to get invested. On one level it's similar to Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow as it plays to the genre itself.
I don't know, I can't really agree with you.
They've shown how Hardy and Claire's relationship formed. They've shown how Parker's attitude toward cults formed. They've shown background on several of the characters. That's at least an attempt on character development, however feeble. If what you said about characters development in this show (or lack of), I wouldn't have an opinion on them, and wouldn't hate them like I do.
Parker has been caught alone so many times, I was actually rooting for her to die. she was apparently incapable of learning. Dang, I think it's been proven even rats can learn. Maybe if they wrote her character to be developmentally disabled, I would have given her a pass. But as far as I can tell, she is supposed to be not only at a normal I.Q., but in possession of a college degree.
