    Sci-fi meets Steampunk in 1800's England ( I'm guessing). I'm kinda fascinated with episode one. Anyone else watching?

    Gave episode one a shot.

    I thought it stunk.

    The quality of HBO programming has decreased dramatically in the last decade. Most new shows are a miss.

    I thought the writing was bad. From storyline to dialog terrible. Visual effects were good though. I suppose it depends what you are into.

    I'll give it a shot but must agree with Harbinger77. HBO has been going downhill for a while now.

    P.S. It features Emily Tomlinson, so they have my attention.

    We liked the ( sorry, forget the names) Perry Mason- prequel Series,
    and the Philip Roth/ Charles Lindbergh Series

    * the Perry Mason one took a few shows to get into, follow, but then we were 'all in!'

    It's on regular HBO, not HBO plus...

    I watched it and liked it more than I thought I would. Great casting and some forgivable but dopey moments in the first episode. I thought it was going to be another YA thing like His Dark Materials (barely got through one episode of that), but this is definitely adult-adult. I like that there's not too much steampunk stuff either, that whole thing grates on me quickly.

    We'll see where they take it.

    i'm holding off until there are 3 episodes i can watch all in a row. the trailer i saw looked really good.

    i also really liked the Perry Mason hbo did. i was surprised at how good it was. it does require the viewer to hang through the 1st 2-3-4 episodes to get into it. looking forward to new seasons.

    Yeah, but how much can you bench press?

    Also, are you currently wearing cargo shorts?

    Only vegan gluten-free keto-friendly cargo shorts for me when I do cross-fit!

    I'm curious to see whether the replacement showrunner will try to make it seem like Joss is still involved or will take it in a less Joss-y direction. We're giving it some time.

    I really hope there's a lot more development, though - so. many. characters. and I have no idea who some of them are or if we need to pay attention to them.

    I don’t have cable. For me it’s streaming, piracy, or physical media.
