The drama explores facts about the CIA's Black Operations program known as Treadstone. This dangerous program is one of the most important secret programs planned exceptionally. It is a covert operation that uses a behavior modification protocol to turn its agents into killers and thugs for their dangerous tasks.
Treadstone proceeds a little too slowly in terms of connecting the dots, but the show doesn't scrimp on action, and those who enjoyed the movies should find tantalizing threads in this expansion of the narrative.
While lots of action films require the audience to suspend disbelief at times, Treadstone requires them to saw the tops of their own heads off and remove the gooey blob inside. It's the only way you'll survive the writing.
