I don't have much faith left in Netflix originals, but that looks pretty great. Awesome cast as well.

I really don't like Emma Stone's frumpy appearance in this. She's hot as fuck normally.

Hot as fuck? She has fish eyes, pasty skin, and a smoker's voice all the time.

Three thoughts so far:

1) This show is weird but I can't stop watching it.
2) Jonah Hill is terrible at accents.
3) The headsets are made of copper CPU cooler heatsinks.

I've enjoyed the first few episodes so far. The visual style is great. It's also nice to see Gollum getting more work, even if he has to play a blonde.

Edit: Finished it and it was great. It's charming, funny, visually striking, creative, well written, and has a great cast that brings it home. Very much worth watching.

This show is strange. Good strange. Unique. But I did notice the cpu heatpipe heatsink on that one headset. Interesting use of materials. Little bit of HAL 9000. Little bit of Matrix. Would suggest.

I loved this, it sort of had a Akira meets Legion art style to it. I have to wonder how much of it was inspired by Psychedelics due to it's use of hallucinating drugs and a guide (in this case a computer) to work through your pain and suffering to free you from it. I'm really enjoying the growing number of really weird/beautiful but some how workable shows that have been coming out lately.. this definitely reminded me of American Gods/Legion.

Justin Theroux was fucking great. Jonah Hill was good and Emma Stone was fine. Sally Field was pretty fucking good for her small part. About the ending:

I don't know what it was. I think people at face value will just be like "oh yay they're happy" and other people will realize it's exactly as Owen predicted. The two of them, escaping trouble in a car, happy as friends. Does that mean it's still in his mind? Is he precog? Who knows. I'm sure it's probably the first thing, but I think there's definitely ambiguity if you look closely.

Boring, couldn't make me look up from my iPad long enough to follow what was going on. Boring to look at and boring to listen to.

Sad how many shows I judge by whether or not they are able to distract me from IiPadding.

On episode 6 so far. I feel like this series is going to take a second watch through to fully "get," but I'm not sure I'll actually WANT to watch it again once I reach the end. Tho I am enjoying it to an extent.
