Review: American Odyssey Created by Peter Horton, Adam Armus and Kay Foster; NBC

American Odyssey (Television Series); Created by Peter Horton, Adam Armus and Kay Foster; NBC; First episode date: April 5, 2015
Television Shorts


A canceled series (one season) I came across. It's one of those shows you want to like more than you actually do. I stayed because a great deal of the storyline takes place in Mali and Algeria- a smaller portion, and the story is about USA cooperation with terrorists in its quest for global domination. 

The problem is we experience and learn both of these in the first two episodes.

The question then becomes whether we should stay for eleven more hours of what amounts to a hodgepodge cast and stories cherry-picked from better-told ventures.

Recommendation: LOW
