Just finished episode six. Not really a spoiler, but......

The start of the episode when Thandie Newton walks around the complex and discovers she is a robot was pretty simple, but stunning. Couldn't take my eyes off it. Didn't recognise the tune playing. Not sure if it was a known song.

That was a Radiohead episode. Fake Plastic Trees at the beginning and Motion Picture Soundtrack when they're walking around upstairs.

Yeah I recognise the music normally. That bit I thought might be a well known tune

Just watched episode 8. It's starting to wrap up.

is Mcpoyle actually the man in black?

Greatest show since Lost. Not even Mr Robot is as engaging and entertaining at the same time.

I honestly don't think that I can watch this show without a drink.

\W/ 90 minute finale coming up on Sunday/Monday. Didn't think I'd ever be so excited about a TV show again. It'd be almost embarrassing if it wasn't so genuinely brilliant.

Gonna have to get stuck in then if the finale is coming up. Hate waiting for episodes week to week these days.

think so too. Might be a bit much to take in all at once though.
Definitely worth a few rewatches.

Got to watch episode seven yet again,as I've watched it twice after drinking and can't really remember anything.

Yep just watched the first episode, cracking stuff. Love the show's use of music too.

It's quite cerebral like Mr Robot so it's not one to just sit and watch episode after episode but I can't wait to see where it's going.

The music is one of my favourite things, especially when you think about the unused lyrics that always fit the situation.
Mr Robot is very clever too but I much prefer the abstract storytelling and literature and cultural references of shows like Westworld and Lost. So much food for thought and room for interpretation. I love it.

That was just brilliant, start to finish. No higher praise from me than to consider this first season on a par with Lost. Better first season too since its told in a compact 10,5 hours with no time to go off on meaningless stuff.
Awesome setup for the next season as well. That'll be a long fucking wait until early 2018.

I can't believe you got it. I have to say I have watched most of this series half cut or hungover, so whilst I loved it, I was unable to second guess anything.

Everything was a surprise, so it was great.

Last episode was great, but not so great at the same time. Would have been better if they had tied it all up, but they don't do that anymore do they?

I've just read that back, and it's not a conversation point I have to say.
