Looks like it could be interesting but they'll drag it out.

it has been done loads of times, but the problem is it never had a large enough budget to do it justice (not even Heroes)

This will fail as well unless it not just another show were it's just people talking and then one half-arsed action sequence every few episodes.

Worth mentioning JMS of Babylon 5 is involved as well as the Wachoski's. However saying that, the trailer does nothing for me.

JMS involvement is enough for me to watch.

Just finished the first episode. I was really looking forward to this but the first episode is pretty tough viewing. It is all over the place, I can't remember a single characters name due to there being so many of them.

I will watch a couple more and hopefully it will start to make a bit of sense.

Edit: Should mention it is a beautiful looking production, not so sure what they did during the opening credits but the amount of colour looked as though it was about to burst out of the screen.

Don't think I'll ever look at Martha Jones in a tenth doctor doctor who in the same way ever again.

Have to agree, its all over the place, introduces too many characters in the first episode and its bad idea as no one can develop well. Only the first ep, it can improve

Also agree its visually beautiful looking.

Just watched 1st ep too and tbh I don't recall them giving many of the characters names so its not surprising you can't remember them. I guess we'll learn their names over coming episodes but for now they're just "cop", "dj", "van dam", "Gary Barlow" etc to me.

Yes. It's been woefully reviewed. I'll be giving it a miss. Everything the Wachowski's touch turns to ****.

Tried the 2nd episode, its no better. Shame the the premise is decent in theory, I read the pretty much spoiler free review of the season on IGN. I know IGN game reviews are not great but their tv/film reviews are decent and the season review is not a glowing one and its not lone voice.


The angry, psychotic fanboy rage comments on iGN from "people" attacking the review and the reviewer are more entertaining than the show.

I read a few comments of those that seen all 12 episodes, and that all 12 is pretty much the same as the first episode, i.e. slow and not much happens

I'll skip this one
