    I know that they had to go there at some point ,but sexbots already in the second episode? That reeks of desperation and going after the male audience. Also a few niggles: Why were there no male sexbots shown? And why would they have to kidnap women to get their skin, when we can already grow skin in the lab today and should be able to do this even better in the future shown in the series?

    What I like is the interplay between the two leads. They are beginning to become buddies, with the human partner seeming less human than the android, which seems either weird or frightening, depending on how you look at it. Interesting the conversation about where do androids go after they get switched off, even though the answer seems to easy and a bit religiously influenced.moreless

    Wow! Finally a new sf-show that really brings new stuff! DNA bombs? Great! Flashmasks? Fantastic! The actors are starting to get in their roles, a hint of chemistry is already showing, and I am already being drawn into the story: I want to know more, but I also want the individual episodes to stay this exciting. What can I say! Best new show this fall!
