February 14, 2019
Whatever the sci-fi parameters, they're not enough in themselves to sell a series.

The developing father-daughter bond between Brad and Amy transcends the nonsense and pulls it all together.

The show offers enough serialized momentum to maintain interest, without completely sinking its teeth into you.

It's breathless and intriguing, if a bit modestly scaled.

There is no piece of information delivered fluidly or artfully in The Passage. Maybe if this had been a cable or streaming show with 55 minutes per episode, there might have been time for breathing.

The Passage, a hokey but mildly entertaining drama about an ill-fated scientific attempt to harness the immunity of rabid vampires
January 14, 2019
There's morality struggles and supposed bigger questions about humanity, but it's all lost in a mess of genre splashes. Add in paper-thin characters and an abysmal sense of pacing, and you have a new show that misfires on just about every front.

The Passage is doomed by its unwillingness to commit to its own darkness.

It's a unified, at times baffling experience wrapped up with a Gosselaar bow.

It's a worthy endeavor... But for it to work in the long run, The Passage will need to start balancing the strength of the bond between its two principals with a clearer, stronger sense of the real horror they're facing.

[O]verall, it's a series with the promise to intrigue, terrify and bring nuanced tales of fanged villains back into the weekly fold (it's been a long time since "True Blood.") Just don't call them vampires.
