We have just finished watching this series (I think it aired
pre-Christmas). In modern fashion it was told in a non-linear fashion
as we must expect.
What if anything did umrats think of it? I rather feel that it was so
complex that it was twice as long to tell as it needed and I am far from
sure that I will want to watch another series.
Yes, twice as long, no, not sure I want to watch another series. I
don't like non-linear, probably because I have enough trouble
following linear :) Also i didn't really enjoy it.

I was very taken by the first series of Humans which is based around an
underlying premise of robots - and we have series 2 waiting to be
watched. Will it be worth it?
I think I watched a few episodes and then gave that up. B didn't
watch that one at all.
We've also been watching Timeless and I don't think that is wonderful.
Episodes are a bit samey. Go back in period dress, danger,get stuck?
Get home, what has changed? And we watched serveral of Frequency,
interesting but again not wonderful and we seem to have stopped, I'm
not sure if for good. The idea was interesting but maybe a shorter
series would have been better.
For SF Startrek, The Next Generation was good at the time. Maybe dated
now. I loved Data. A well-thought-out android. Battlestar Galacticva
was good up to a point and had synthetic being in it that were well
Stargate was very good although i was less keen on Atlantis as didn't
like the main characters. Stargate Universe was good but they stopped
it half way. stopped half way through.
Years ago there was a series called something like Out of This World I
think that had some of Assimov's robots in it. Those were good
stories, well done.
