Episode 1
AIRED:

Four Internet forum friends--Grant, Ian, Wilson, and Becky--learn from a fifth that he has the unpublished part 2 of "The Utopia Manuscript," a cult graphic novel. When their friend dies, Grant is forced to go on the run with the manuscript while Becky and Ian are framed for sex crimes. Meanwhile, The Network sends two of their men, Arby and Lee, to interrogate Wilson. Elsewhere, Department of Health assistant secretary Michael Dugdale discovers that The Network wants him to authorize the purchase of an unneeded Russian flu vaccine, and threaten to expose his affair if he doesn't.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Wilson: Funny, seeing each other like this. I didn't expect you to be pretty, Becky.
        Becky: Thank you, Wilson. I think.
        Wilson: Ian, I didn't expect you to be...
        Ian: Tall?
        Wilson: No, black.

      • Becky: What do you do?
        Ian: Well, think of the least interesting thing you could think of.
        Becky: IT. (Ian stares) Oh, no fucking way.
        Ian: Way fucking way. I also live with my mom.
        Becky: Jesus Christ, you're going to make me cry then. What happened?
        Ian: I don't know. I really don't know.

      • Wilson: Why you into it, then?
        Ian: Well, for the artwork. The stories, the sheer... imaginative vision. It's like opening a door into another world. Why diminish it by pretending it's real?
        Wilson: It's opening a door, all right, but what you don't realize is that it's opening a door... to reality.
        Ian: What does that even mean, Wilson?
        Wilson: I don't know, I'm a bit drunk.

      • Lee: Most torturers tend to have their favorite areas of the body to work on. Genitals, teeth, soles of the feet. With me... it's the eyes. Chilis, sand, bleach. A spoon.
        Wilson: Is this about Utopia? I didn't even know Bejan.
        Lee: I'm going to run chilis into your eyes. Then sand. Then bleach. Then I'm going to use the spoon. Do you know what I do with the spoon?
