  1. This show is great! And Katherine Heigl really managed to impress me with her performance on this one. I don't get why this show is rated so poorly...

It starts in a quite boring way, with a "deja vu" feeling, everything seems predictable. However, things suddenly changes by the end of episode 2. Then, unfortunately, the series does not keep the momentum, and the next two episodes are not so captivating, just enough to make me curious about how all this is going to turn out. Then I got a thrill with the 2 last episodes, I really appreciated them: the speed goes up, things move fast, it was exciting. A lot of potentialities are open and it keeps the suspense on, even after the 6th and last episode ends. So I ended up with a rather good opinion. As often, the end of a show is more important than its beginning. Not perfect, but a good try. I could not sympathize with any character except a poor fellow who drinks a lot (I will not say more about him so as not to spoil the viewing), and some characters, especially women are quite unfriendly, while I remained indifferent to others. But the interactions between the characters are more important than the characters themselves in my mind. I got caught into the story enough to wish a second season. In conclusion, give it a try if you did not watch it, there are interesting ideas and it's worth spending 6 hours or so on it. Full Review »

But giving the show a chance into the later half of the season, I find myself legitimately laughing at the jokes. There are also some very unexpected dramatic bits that a show like this wouldn't normal bother with. I think this show is definitely worth a look even if it has a shakey start. Full Review »

The first episode, National Anthem, is unbelievable to the point of absurdity. Not only would it be impossible for one man to kidnap a royal family member, but even if he did, the administration would never give in to demands. Placing so much screen time on this supposed dilemma just goes to lengthen our outrage. In the second episode, 15 Million Merits, we are presented with a world that crosses Brave New World and Network without adding anything more than a snide implication about fat shaming. Much like in the first episode, social commentary is kept to the epilogue while the majority of the screen time is given to the implausible scenario (in this case, that an economy could be run through an inefficient power source like human metabolism). When the punchline arrives - that even if someone does make a stand and criticizes our soulless society, it is quickly monetized and interpreted as art rather than a call to arms - it lacks the punch that it did in Network, especially when the effect on the lead character's psyche is not examined. The third episode, the Entire History of You, could practically be fan fiction in a Dan Simmons universe, playing his "Flashback" concept straight. The production values are strong in this series, and the acting is quite good, but while the writing compels, it never quite reaches a level of respectability worthy of remembrance among actual sci-fi or satire fans. The Twilight Zone, a series that this one is often compared to, had its fair share of unmemorable episodes also, and didn't really do that much for television, yet is remembered because of unmistakable vignettes included in its episodes: a man's panic at seeing a monster outside the airplane window, or a dreamlike rendition of an astronaut's solitude. It is these things that made the Twilight Zone remarkable, and while some imagination goes into the filming and conception of the stories told herein, sadly, it is more of a reflection of our society than an original work of it.
