Anyone on board with this? First three episodes that I've watched have been pretty cool. Kind of a Battlestar Galactica meets Blade Runner type thing. It needs to get better, but it's got potential.

I've got a lull in my TV spots since Doctor Who is done for the year so I'll have to give it a go.

Just watched the first season on Amazon Prime in order to get caught up to season two, which is airing now on SyFy. This is a really good show, I actually like the premise more than Blade Runner, which this was clearly influenced by. I do think they kind of crammed too much into the last couple of episodes of the first season. Kind of a minor complaint though, as I'm pretty fully on board and ready for season two now.

Running about three weeks behind, but overall this season is really delivering so far.

Pretty good season. It lost a little bit without Miller around for most of it though. I'm sure he'll be back next season and they've set things up pretty good for him to come back and tie up the current story lines while adding new ones.

It was very good. Kind of reprise of current day nuclear proliferation; the genie getting out of the bottle and race to the top kind of thing. Really good and I'm continually impressed with the effects. I don't know how SyFy affords to do it because I always considered them a third or fourth tier network, but I think the sets and effects are much better than what you see on Game of Thrones and that's fuckin' HBO!
