Syfy, 10:00 p.m. ET

 
SERIES PREMIERE: Behind the scenes, this new Syfy series about a dystopian future is produced by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. On screen, its stars include Dennis Haysbert of 24 and Julia Ormond of Mad Men. It’s set in 2074, and, as with the movie Minority Report, what’s most impressive – at least in tonight’s premiere episode – is its detailed vision of its imagined future, which is ruled by corporations instead of countries and is divided into green and red “zones” populated respectively by the privileged and the masses. The green zones are polished and posh; the red zones are more like Times Square a century earlier, all neon and vice – and, at least initially, a lot more compelling, at least around the edges. For a full review, see Ed Bark's Uncle Barky's Bytes and for an interview with star Julia Ormond, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower.

Your second link leads to a piece on Julia Ormond, not a review.
