About to start it premise seemed interesting enough. Had a blade runner feel to it though obviously not heading in that direction.

ya for sure it does come-off especially in the beginning episode of the series with that CG futuristic city Bladerunner 2049 look and feel . But the series more than makes up for that as you go into it . great story line and immortality let loose to the hands of the most wealthy on earth, becomes the ultimate corruption to mankind.

Just finished the series, I liked it. Interesting plot that can be taken for some superficial fun or start some good discussions regarding power/corruption. 17yr old son enjoyed it, wife not so much.

I agree fantastic job with Cinematography/CGI. I appreciate a fresh take on a future distopia. I couldn’t help but feel however that once they hit about episode 6 it was all about laying groundwork for the next season.

Unfortunately it seems that most things that go in that direction take a very liberal socialist type tone. The source material doesn’t really take that tone or examine it to that degree, from what I’ve read of it. We'll see what Netflix does with it.

Been waiting for this series for some time. Advertising for it had me pumped. About the time it was released I was in the middle of Peaky Blinders! Just finished Peaky Blinders tonight and was reading reviews about AC and they aren’t good. Still going to watch the series because I like Kinnaman!
