Anybody seen this new series? Some first class actors and a very interesting theme involving AI, morality and reality.

Looks interesting, and I've liked some of Nolan's other sci-fic projects, like "Person of Interest." I see it's based on the 1973 Michael Crichton film. Unfortunately, I don't get HBO, so it will be a long wait for the Blue-Ray. HBO tends to hang on to their content a long time before allowing release to disk.

Episode 2 Monday :D

Anthony Hopkins is, as usual, a class act!

I think I'll throw in some philosophically related questions in reference to this series. In the first episode several were opened up. It looks like it will be a very good series full of interesting moral issues and existential issues too.

In the first episode Hopkins made a remark about humans having become the best they can become. Obviously worded much more poetically than that simple scrawl.

I did not see last nights episodes -- hmm, how should we discuss without spoiling for others? :) The show is definitely worthy of extended discussion!

Good show. Almost lost me by episode 3, but seems to have picked up nicely since.

Last nights episode revealed something you expected but probably not WHO you expected ...

A few weeks ago there was a lot of discussion about the Man in black actually being William like 30 years later - I think the evidence is showing this not to be the case - any thoughts?

I have always been a big admirer of Thandie Newton ... I have to admit mainly because I think she is one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen. That said she is a very good actress and I look forward to seeing her interacting with the flawless Hopkins.

The last show that caught my attention like this was Breaking Bad. I think there is a lot in this series and just hope it plays out to its full potential.

Some may be behind on viewing this series ( will be watching this mos def in a few months) so you could put SPOILER ALERT at the start of your posts and then discuss freely.

I am worried they'll turn it into the dream of a butterflys dream or some nonsense.

Pretty impressed up to now though. And Thandie is still so damn hot! :)

I'm ready for one to hop a train and get away, but maybe its like that one cannot roll a shopping cart past the parking lot's perimeter.

Yes they did discuss that their heads would blow off if that were to happen - seems quite evil :) If I worked there and wanted to know if I was a robot or not I guess I'd just have to ask myself if I remember leaving the premises in the last 24 hours...

I hear that! How long do we have to give these people before we can start discussing the show?

Will be interesting to see where they take it. I kind of think one season was enough tbh.
