Well, that fell off a cliff into the Abyss of Cliché very quickly!

This resembles the script:

Predictable dialogue, situations we’ve seen before, and who the hell really thought he …

… they insert a stupid fucking song over the President’s second visit, turning the area into a music video!

Did anyone stop to think about how damned sobering it would have been without any music whatsoever? How the crunch of walked-over wreckage and the sound of digging would have gripped the attention of viewers? It’s a vast graveyard, not a damned party!

The only thing that kept me watching was the movie-quality performance of Sutherland.

The script was tempting me to otherwise abandon the series already.
