Re: Episode 1
Well I'm two for two for surprises this season. That was not nearly as good as I was hoping for. It's obviously very much setup, so I'll hold out some hope that there will be satisfying payoff. The way the tension builds throughout it is a pretty good indicator that's the effect they're banking on. The setting looks potentially pretty fascinating, but I'm not sure if what we're going to be exploring will be the most interesting method they could use to display it. Also, Googling it, I found some... surprisingly explicit pictures of the source material, and not in the way I was expecting. Hmm... not sure where this show will go.
