I am chaos
Even if the story sucked, it still can be a great show. Story doesn't necessarily dictate if a show is compelling, provocative, or entertaining. But I do agree that it looks like at least this season will break away from pointless conflicts just to produce episodes, like nearly every other show doesWell I'm happy to report I'm right as fuck.
I did enjoy the first episode but they are setting up an AWFUL lot. There are a lot of spinning plates here. Political divides, racial divides, geo-political divides, extra-dimensional divides! But it's interesting. It's extremely interesting. It's a gosh-darn interesting take on this world. It took an established property and did something new with it. I'm fucking shocked. A story.. advanced? In 2019? What magical world of possibilities did I stumble into?
Also the music is so sexy. This Trent Reznor guy ain't half bad.
