WOW! Treason has one of the strongest casts I've seen at Fringe this year. Every character is real, honest, and completely connected.

Treason is an engaging hour of family drama that keeps its vision straight through to the end. There was a lot to take away from this show- the acting and writing worked incredibly well together to create a fantastic story.... full review

Treason is a great look at modern America; not ever coming off as parody but always thoughtful. ... full review
