    Checked out the pilot and really really liked it. Well-written so far, tech stuff is pretty accurate, gave me pretty mad Fight Club vibes and was definitely entertaining. If anything, this will fill the Person of Interest void for me this summer.

    Anyone else watch it?

    Rami Malek is a pretty damn good narrator. I loved it.
    It seems quite realistic and it will be really interesting to try to guess what is real and what is delusion.
    I will definitely watch the show.

    Possible to use multiple window managers on LINUX. Gnome and KDE can coexist. Obviously they didnt know that! Very good show though!

    That scene felt a bit odd, though I think it was supposed to and/or be an attempt for the exec to try to awkwardly hang at that level. I am not sure I would call it a technical error though as I read it as more of a personal preference discussion (I can install whatever I like but when it comes to getting stuff done...).

    I forgot
    When I first watched it when the first episode came out weeks ago I was very surprised by the majority of the accuracy of most of the tech terms and everything, the show didn't just throw out some dumb fuck terms in completely irrelevant situations like some shows do (cough cough POI). I'm interested in seeing whether they throw all that accuracy out the door the farther they go in the series.

    Main character is also super cringe-y, as is most of the other characters...but that's ok I guess, since apparently "all tech people are just super fucking max edgy!" like him.

    POI is one of the better examples of a show that doesn't do that. >.>

    and was watching a talk about this show on youtube,


    and i doubt it'll go on that path as the creator of the show is a techy.

    Person of interest does marginally better than most but it still seems to dip in the thrown computer related fridge magnets on quite a few occasions, and definitely has a dose of magic computer/deus ex computer. Also master hacker seems to need to lean on police contacts for a lot of things that I am pretty sure I have access to, probably from a basic web portal.

    Now it is streets ahead of something I might see in Law and Order or CSI (especially CSI cyber, wow that is hilarious), or even that otherwise enjoyable Scorpion program.

    I liked the first episode.
    there were lot of info and details (even if I don't know linux and servers, I just assumed it's how it works).
    I like the main character psychology and how he acts (might be a little conflicting, if he is social phobic I feel like he wouldn't raise arms in the street in front of peoples. Well it's just some details)

    I've watched the pilot episode yesterday and within the first initial minutes it got me hooked so much so that I can't wait for the rest to be aired/released. And also, I remember this actor from Need for Speed so it's great to see him acting again.

    By the way, his eyes open way TOO much! O.O

    That font... Sega should sue and get enough cash to make the Dreamcast 2.

    By today's standards Dreamcast 2 would be a gaming streaming service solely of Sega published games. Not a totally bad idea.

    Second episode today. I do not know if I enjoyed it quite as much as the first but it was by no means bad.

    I disagree! Episode 2 shows that this is by no means a simple good vs bad story. Can't wait to see where this goes from here. Without spoiling the end of the episode for the people that haven't seen it but there would have to be payback on Mr Robot for actions and words. A serious beating would be appropriate in by book.

    I saw the word "edgy" and immediately added this to my TV backlog.

    I've to agree with Elliot. Marvel movies are stupid but there are some good ones too though ultimately they come nowhere near the awesome DC movies.

    Can't wait for Batman Vs. Superman! :)
