    All you film buffs and fans of Lynch like movies and shows will LOVE THIS. All you film nerds too. Each episode is like a self contained movie.

    First episode recap - British PM is forced to have sex with a farm animal.

    Episode 3 aired. Really an amazing show that blends techno-futurism with drama. Seriously, watch this.

    anybody watch this?

    i liked the premise of the first episode, but i really hated the final execution of it. not very well thought out and fell short for me. the ending kind of made up for it

    I've watched the first three episodes so far. Very good overall, imo, and definitely unique.

    yeah i really like it overall

    the second episode i thought was a really weak concept, but the execution of it and the monologue at the end was fantastic. incredible acting, but weak ending.

    the third episode blew my mind. just incredible everything from the beginning to the ending, concept, storyline, plot devices, acting, the general philosophy of it all, and how it relates to our society. i think one of my favorite pieces of television ever.

    second season was great in general. one kind of cringeworthy episode.

    Yeah, haven't really read much into it. Apparently they want to modify the story a bit. Excited to see it in case it ever sees the light of day.
