Here, my premiere review as I watched it in advance as ABC provided me with a press screener.

The cast ensemble is very interesting, and the premise is also. So I am looking forward to this show very much, so with that expectation in mind comes my opinion. The Family ABC ´s bet for a good new drama has a compelling story.

The formula of the flash forward, flash back where we don´t really know at the beginning which is the present time sets the tone. We immediately know there is a crime involved in this, and then, politics. And Family matters. ABC really knows how to create tension. And even though this show is only in the premiere, I am already in can´t wait mode fot what´s next. I don´t want to give away any spoilers about the show, but it is certainly one to look at in the future. And that future is March, so mark your calendars, a good show is on the way.
