I have to agree with one of the posters in the article

"I have read about this series twice now and still have no clue what its about. Bad sign."

I also don't know what it's about and I just read it twice.

It's supposed to be along the same vein as Inception.

Yeah another poster had all the info that the story itself lacks.

"After reading the pilot I can tell you it's about a detective whose fractured psyche creates two alternate realities for himself in his sleep (hence the title REM). In one reality his son is dead, and the other his wife murdered. But in reality he's lost them both. It's very 'Inception'-esque and well written. Should be good. Just hope audiences can follow it."

That could end up being a major flaw with that show. They may lose people who just don't want to think too much into it. On the other hand it may thrive for the people who do want something that offers mystery and intrigue in the absence of LOST.
