All this immediately seems predictable when you consider JJ Abrams is an exec producer.
That names rings a bell, but I can't place what else he might've produced. I'm not reading anything on the series in case I decide to watch it later on when I hook up HBO again for GoT, so I'll be relying on the opinions of others. From yours I can see I'm not missing much by waiting.
I feel the same. I wasn't overly excited about it. Although, the acting was quite good with the glitchy characters and the idea of floor 83 warehousing all the compromised 'hosts' could be interesting. Ed Harris' character made me cringe. Very creepy. Anthony Hopkins??? The characters felt flat although that might be about to change. I'll give it another go.
