I know the hosts of TIST pretty much gave a thumbs down on this dystopian show from SyFy, but I decided to give it a chance. After a pretty standard, not very exciting pilot, things pick up quickly on subsequent episodes. True, is not the greatest sci fi show out there, but is much better than what you could infer from the pilot.
I think the most compelling part is that the scary future world they have built is feels a little too believable for comfort. Too close to home, if you will.
