I see it’s based on the book by Hugh Howey, who also did the Silo series which I really enjoyed the TV adaptation of. I’m wondering if it’s any good as I don’t have a lot of time for starting too many TV shows at the moment.

    Just watched episodes 1-6 yesterday.

    Each episode is compelling, it’s good.

    Their method of storytelling is nonlinear, and some of the episodes don’t seem connected to the other episodes. There’s also a bit of unreliable narrator going on. So some of the episodes were a little frustrating to watch because they’re being so circuitous with the story

    I got whiplash with some of the character development and dialog, moving so fast, i.e. lacking character motivation and sudden emotional commitment.

    I’m on episode 6, and I’m not sure if all of the episodes are based in the same timeline, because to weave them together would be quite difficult.

    Anyway, worth watching.

      Thanks. I just realised there’s only 8 episodes in the first season, so not a big commitment.

      Does it feel like there’s too many unresolved questions to be covered in the next two episodes?

        I’m sure they will do it. Just had some thoughts of their style of story telling. It’s fine second screen material.

        They have a huge, massive plot point, about AI murdering people… And they just kind of gloss over it no big deal. Even though it’s the first time they’re aware of this happening. HUGE fucking deal…

        Kind of like when Star Trek solved death and aging, and they never used it again
