I read the book last year and it was amazing, very intense. Can't wait to get some time to watch the series, I hope they did it justice.

Just finished the series on Netflix

Although I cannot stand the little not-so-hidden SJW motifs and subtext Nextflix constantly throws into ALL it's series now to poison and taint the public subconscious --- I thought this show was so good that I actually watched it all the way through and thought it was an amazing show.

James Purefoy is an excellent actor and I really like him in everything I've seen him in since "Rome" (which happens to compete with Deadwood and BSG as my all-time #1 favorite show ever).

Good show. Binged this weekend. I just finished the underground cage battle episode. I could use a Poe.

We could all use a Poe


Im recovering from surgery to my jaw so I was a little slow on the uptake and finally realized the nod to the author when they were all playing cards and his name tag said "Edgar A."........

I had read all three of these books a couple of years ago. I think they did a fantastic job in what was a really, really difficult adaptation, but the further I get into this show the more I wonder why they made some of the changes.

Has anyone both seen the series and read the books, or at least the first one?

Watched E1 and like this show. Started watching E2 and noticed when they step up to the ID plate scan the computer will provide all of the sleeves that particular stack has had so far.

Cool show.

You do realize they're just the Distribution company right? Maybe not. But they are.
