Just found this show. 6 episodes. Fucking cool brain bendy stuff.

Stupid people need not apply.

This ain't no space opera Buck Rogers shit..

I will have to check it out.

Yeah, that first episode was rather disturbing....

I'll have to check that out.

Just discovered it the other day. You sir, know quality writing when you see it.
Link Posted: 12/10/2014 2:47:49 AM EST
I have heard good buzz around it.
Link Posted: 12/10/2014 3:17:50 AM EST
Is it possible this dates back to 2011?
Ep. #1 "The National Anthem"
Ep. #2 "15 Million Merits"
Ep. #3 "The Entire History of You"
?

Episode 1 was good, I couldn't make it through 2,3.... I think I made it through 5 and 6.

I was skipping around... I know I watched 2 out of 3 on season 2.

15 Million Merits was damned good. All calm and placid for half an hour as it does a great job of world building (an vapid, empty Apple future ruled by Candy Crush), then suddenly a series of ruthless sucker punches, bam-bam-bam.

I really liked the originality of this series. I think many of the 6 episodes I watched could be interesting movies.
Link Posted: 12/10/2014 8:47:41 AM EST
Thanks for the heads up.

I've watched 3 eps so far, I'm not blown away. They move sloooooooooooow, yawn. I'm not sure I'll finish the series.

I thought it was brilliant.

Also, if you had finished the episode you'd have found out Click To View Spoiler

The writing juxtaposed a new problem -- being able to scour memory to that level of detail and how it could drive us nuts; with an old problem -- the treachery of deceit and betrayal and the human instinct for fear and paranoia when it seems something might be amiss.

I suggest you take in the last five minutes as they're sort of important to the story:

Click To View Spoiler

Also the way the tech was used for societal control was chilling -- ie how he had to replay memories for security at the airport.

I'd say of all the Black Mirror pieces, the idea behind this one has the best potential for a movie spin off.

Watched the first three episodes the other day. Really liked them.
Link Posted: 12/14/2014 10:40:57 AM EST
Was not that impressed with it.
Link Posted: 12/14/2014 11:08:42 AM EST
Just finished the last episode last night. I like the show, but I was surprised when I realized I had moved on to season 2 after only viewing 3 episodes.

15 million merits was my favorite episode.

Facebook is hard enough on marriages, imagine if it let you replay all of the sex you had in college.

We're there now in some respects. Some employers consider applicants who do NOT have Facebook as being suspect untrustworthy.

Flash Gordon is the space opera,not Buck Rodgers
Link Posted: 12/14/2014 12:35:11 PM EST
It is fucking amazing!
cerebral and multilayered

loved the one with the memory chip, brilliant to put that story in the context they did, the first one was a bit disturbing but valid commentary about our poet modern world.
The power of social media is still misunderstood, the one about reality shows was a chilling

Could go on all night, see something new every time I watch one of them....

Waldo was a good one as well, did you catch the comparison to our er um current situation?

If you liked that there is one called " Utopia" as well, another Brit gem that is not for the faint of heart

and

Another called " kill list" that needs a couple watchings , it is short on dialogue and big on visuals, to include a hot Swedish girl and G36 porn

The Brits are producing some incredible shows

First episode was great, but the second was nowhere near as good....really dragged on for an hour. Hope the third improves!

Wow, super impressed with the writing, SFX, and production values.

Thumbs up!

This, it was excellent, and deeply twisted.
