I was gonna hold off on a discussion thread for this show since the pilot episode was so meh, but Episode 2 was a pretty big improvement and I can see it generating a lot of discussion.
Video is pretty self-explanatory, but the show eschews the typical post-apocalyptic cyberpunk setting and instead takes a trip down the epic adventure route. The first episode was, well, watchable, to say the least, but there wasn't a whole lot to it: things happened, things happened very fast, and then it was over and a couple of twists happened. Pretty average stuff, but it moved way too fast to care.
Episode 2 slowed down considerably and gave us a lot of good stuff to chew on, though the jumping around can get annoying, especially if the show stays mostly about Miles and Charlie like it seems to be doing, at least for the time being. But I'm holding out for some good stuff, especially what those last couple of scenes will entail. Here's hoping the show improves (and doesn't get cancelled in the interim :ninja:)!
- Elizabeth Mitchell deserves a page of discussion on her own. Best actress in this show.
- Giancarlo too. Can't go wrong with him.
