Anyone watching this on Netflix. Just finished episode 1 and might be up for the remainder of the night/early morning watching the full series. Got to say this looks top notch with a great cast. I am loving Klaus.

Finally. I was thinking when svalbard is going to put up the thread, because I thought for a while I should do it, when I watched the series, but in the same time I didn't wanted you to say "You beat me to it ... again."

This series is very good, IMHO. I'm looking forward to your thoughts.

I have finished the first 3 episodes and really like what I am seeing so far.

The way music is used in the show is brilliant and the soundtrack is excellent. The characters are all well written and acted. Netflix's quality is improving all the time.

The premise is good and I am intrigued how it will work out in the end.

If you like the Snowpiercer or the Preacher, you will like this, but I have to warn you that in places it's weird.

I liked it. It started a little slow. It also took a little time for me to settle into the weirdness. Once I did, I enjoyed it. The teleporter (#5) and the dead speaker (dude from Misfits) were my favorites.

The merry music that accompanies scenes of mayhem does remind me of Preacher and Kick-Ass.

Not seen any of it yet so wary of spoilers, but really want to watch it. From what I've seen of the trailers it does kinda look like Robert Sheehan (Misfits) is playing Nathan again. Good to see Tom Hopper too.

A friend was recommending this series so badly, so I'm gonna start watching it today, hope it's as good as he says.
