If you thought Hidden Identity was all about a brooding bad-ass Bummie you’d be, well, mostly right. But there’s still so much more to this slick action-thriller, especially when it comes to the Investigation 5 Unit and the fearless man who leads them.

Hidden Identity: Episode 1
by | June 18, 2015 | 75 Comments
Hidden Identity is slick, well-produced, impeccably acted, and delivers lots of action and angst in its premiere episode.

The setup is compelling, and I’m... More »
