I am new to this forum, so sorry if I seem a little forward :) I love tv shows, and see that you have a section on it which is awesome! But if none of you have seen this show, then I highly recommend it. I think it will be up there with GOT and breaking bad. Let me know what you think :)

I just checked the IMDB page for this show. It appears that the lowest rated of the 5 aired episodes got an 8.5 out of 10 stars. It looks like it's right up my alley with its science fiction elements.
Thanks for the tip.

I've watched all currently released episodes of this show, and so far I like it. Out of 10 stars, I think I would award it 7. At times, the show can feel a little bit draggy, but the dragginess doesn't last too long.

I've watched all the episodes, and I wouldn't say the show contains any elements of science fiction. I don't know who at IMDb said that or why, but I don't agree. I'm not disagreeing with you, just with the person who claimed there were elements of science fiction.

I just started watching this last night. It's fantastic and maybe I would have started watching it earlier if it had been on AMC or a network I trust. Really surprised this is on USA. Had a few episodes taped and I've been streaming from the USA app on the Xbox One. Only through the first two episodes and I am hooked.

I'm really enjoying this show. I've got episodes 6 - 10 on my DVR (started watching it late in the season). Like Chris, I'm watching the earlier ones on my TV through the USA app. I watched #4 last night.

Crikey! I wish I'd known there was a USA app before we just paid $3.99 to watch an episode OnDemand last night. For some strange reason, Vz had episodes 1-4 for free, 5 was listed as buy/rent and 6, 7, etc. were available at no charge. It's been that way for a couple of weeks ... we watched 6 also just in case. As much as I've hated Comcast in the past, I'm beginning to think about dropping Vz. Grrrrrr!

Update - 09/05/15
As we were waiting Episode 10 to appear as available through OnDemand, the old brain cells finally clicked and I realized that we could watch the last remaining episode on our AppleTV through the USA app.

... This show is GREAT!!! We are eagerly waiting for season two.

This show was beyond stellar. I think it's early, but this has Breaking Bad qualities. It's that good. And the finale (no spoilers), just left me wanting more. Guessing they'll have a bigger budget and this will just get better. So. Awesome.

I’m really enjoying the second season. Last week’s episode was totally neat, and it was weird that we
did not see Elliot at all.

In the previous episode, we found out he had been
in prison all this time, which was a total mind[expletive].

I haven’t watched last night’s episode just yet, but I think I will do so before the day is over.

If you like the show take a look at the Telltale app. Cool little idea and some extra story line while we wait.
