Ben Travers of Indie Wire describes the trailer: “The story reminds me a little of “Homeland,” but the cast doesn’t seem comparable. Still, there’s lots of good energy, and the premise is clearly laid out (which is harder than it seems). I really hope her sex buddy doesn’t turn out to be the bomber, though.” Meanwhile Liza Shannon Miller hopes the episodes are worthy of doing justice to the sneak peek: “Definitely a compelling trailer. Hopefully there’s enough story to the premise to sustain it.”
