This is a new Netflix show that I keep seeing on Reddit. It apparently is a little known book by Richard Morgan, but Netflix is giving it a huge budget. Normally this kind of show wouldn't interest me, but it's got a huge blade runner feel.

Looks pretty sweet. I also got a BR2049 because of the sights and some of the music.

Might have to. I hadn't heard anything about it before this thread.

Sarah watched some last night. I was bored after 15minutes. Felt like same production style as sense 8 and I didn't want to be a part of that.

Sarah said the first episode is trash and gets much better after that.

I almost quit the start was so slow, but a bunch of the actors I've liked in other shows and movies so I stuck it out. The 2nd and 3rd episodes were good and caught my interest much better.

Sarah, did you see Blade Runner this year? Remind you at all of that?

I'm half way through it now. It does feel like Westworld...but more like it's trying to be as good as Westworld. It's OK, and I'll finish it, but it's not Westworld. Love Poe...hopefully they can do a series on him.

I ended up watching about 3-4 episodes with Sarah last night.

No where near the quality of Westworld. Yes it is a "hard sc-fi" series, and maybe it is the second best but what else falls in this category?

I'm on the last episode and I never got a Westworld vibe. It gets better and better each episode

I gotta say, i finished this last night and the last three episodes especially were extraordinary. I never once got a Westworld vibe to this show at all. It was BR all the way, but they did it better.

It did BR better than BR?

Watson is never going to post here again after everyone mocked him.

I think so. I thought everything was better.

Also never got a West World vibe. Like not even a little bit. I agree with Wilkins 100%. It was so good, got progressively better even. Blade Runner feel except better in every way.
