Hostages: the good, the bad or is it Ugly?Rating: 2 likes, 1 dislikes
Hostages has a good storyline but in the first 4 episodes they are just fumbling around a bit. That's my feeling anyway. Don't get me wrong, there is great action in the series but the series has a bit too much ups and downs for my taste. If you like this up-down-up-down acting and storyline in your series well then you should give "hostages" a try.
Is hostages good? Absolutely not in my opinion. It does have a lot potential though. If the actors wouldn't be fumbling and stumbling through their lines it would be better. Dispense with the slow-fast -slow approach and it can be a winner.
Is Hostages bad? No but it has a HUGE set of flaws like the ones I mentioned above. Its not good but its not bad either.
Is Hostages ugly? Well for this one I will reserve my opinion for the end of the series. Though I personally think that not one serie is truly "ugly" , or it must be extremely horrible in all departments, Hostages is in the middle between ugly and beautiful so far.
Conclusion is Hostages worth to watch? It depends what kind of series you love. If you like the CSI, NCIS et, you probably go in to this and say what the blazes is this? Is this acting, etc.
In the end it is all up 2 you.
