HOW DAMN GOOD IS THIS SERIES?
The choice of music is also excellent!

Almost done with it. 2 eps to go

I started on this last night and ended up watching till like 2am this morning before realising I need to get up for work at 6:30...
Needless to say I can't wait to get home and watch further.

My favorite bit was in the first few eps "I don't think I am better than you, I know I am"

Was cool but not that cool haha, i think the 2nd last ep was the coolest.

It does end with good potential for an epic season 2 tho

I love the twist in Episode 7 I think. "The day that never was"
Just when you think you know what is going on and it comes to an end it all goes to shit!

Really great. Loving that the bottomless money pit called Netflix was able to license such great music for this show.

My favorite part of the show is Chacha and Hazel, especially Hazel, the character is a master piece! 😂 "just another example of management sticking it to the working man!"

Binged this in 2 days - have a hangover from the binge :sleep:

Awesome show - storyline isn't as woven and intricate as Heroes and given the number of years passed betwen Heroes and now - the special effects aren't all that mindblowing either.

That being said - loved it nonetheless.

Now the eager wait for Season 2

Great series, not quite the same story as the novel, but keeping the main points.
Number 5 is a real ass but real badass.
Just wish they would tell us what happened to Ben (dead brother) but highly unlikely since that was never revealed in the novel so. But he probably has the most interesting power of them all.

Netflix movies and series in general aren’t really high-budget when it comes to visuals. Of all the stuff I watched on Netflix I don’t think I saw one movie or series that has amazing special effects or even amazing production like what you would find on CW’s top shows.

They are using the money pit for more quantity instead of high quality production.

Yeah the first one can make you lose interest. I almost stopped watching after the first but decided to persevere. It does get better.

Why so different from the original graphic novel? I mean she got popped 5 times including one in the head.(sorry if that's a spoiler but I know no one is going to read them).

Still enjoyed it with wife though...
