Started watching this the other night. The girl, Lisa says, "This whole idea was ripped right out of a bad 1990s movie. Obviously, a reference to Indecent Proposal. "I thought that film was quite decent," Anna replies.

I can’t tell if I like it, yet. The opening monologue is what caught my attention.

"Everything happens for a reason. Think about that for a moment. All your efforts, personal, professional, carnal, utter in absolute slaves to some cosmically predetermined set of outcomes. As if we have no say in, let alone culpability for the defining moments in our lives. If you want a life of purpose, make it by inverting the notion that everything happens for a reason. Redefine it, not as some future explanation for a terrible tragedy or glories achievement, but as validation for these deliberate choices that lead us to these critical junctures in the first place. Assert authority over chance, fate, and destiny because everything does happen for a reason and the reason is you. To attain elite success, you must be willing to make the hard choices, do the unpleasant things, risk your most valuable assets, and do away with the shackles designed by society to limit us: love, marriage, children. And above all, the uninvited imposition of lesser people’s moral agendas. Because nothing worthwhile is ever achieved without sacrifice. And true greatness only comes to those willing to pursue it at any cost."

If you like seeing weaklings having more sand kicked in their face then this is for you. However RZ looks great and plays alpha cougar like a Tom-killer in estrus....whoa!

Well, watched the 1st episode - the acting could be better, but it's a limited series, so i'll keep watching. RZ seems bad ass, but the dramatic music needs to go lol
