    Stopped watching after around episode 4-5 May go back to it, but not really grabbing me. It all felt a bit contrived and smug; a bit too pleased with itself if that makes sense?

    Thus far the show comes off as a bit ponderous and full of itself. Still waiting for that 'depth' to kick in.

    So, I just started watching this last night on the recommendation of a friend. The style of the show is nice, although the premise is nothing new it has some nice ideas and stylistic quirks. I like the lead characters a lot.

    (Mild theme / opening episode plot spoiler):

    It's kinda like Fight Club meets the Occupy Movement. Appears on the surface to have a very straight message of CORPORATIONS ARE BAAAAAD, but seems to become less black and white as it goes. Is a little tongue in cheek what with Evil Corp being the antagonist. I hope it develops a more nuanced approach than 'big business is bad / evil', but it seems smarter than that.


    Anyone else watching?
