One of my favorite books. If it is half as good as the book, it should be a home run for Netflix.

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them. If that means sticking all sort of spikes and prongs and blackened bits all over it then so be it. This is not a gun for hanging over the fireplace or sticking in the umbrella stand, it is a gun for going out and making people miserable with.'

I spent the night binge watching it. I just couldn't stop.

I can't decide if Dichen Lachman (who plays Reileen Kawahara) is attractive or strange looking. I've seen her in several shows and my opinion goes back and forth.

Is it a movie or a series? The premise seems awesome to me. Choose what you look like, what race you are, what gender and change whenever you want to shell out the bucks for a new body. Live life with no regrets about what happens to your body because you can always replace it. Wanna go on a drinking / drug binge? No longer have to worry about your liver or the ill effects of drugs, just get a new body. Want to live the life of a daredevil without fear of dying? No problemo we'll pack a spare body just in case your chute doesn't open.

Pretty sweet.

I binged it, last night, as well. It was very good. Ironically, watched Blade Runner 2019 right before watching it. The sets, etc were very Blade Runner-esque.

About Dichen Lachman, I know what you're saying. She's very unique looking. I think she's very attractive.

Chach,
It's a one season series (so far).

Watched the first episode yesterday and am looking forward to the rest.

*Inner 14 year old switched to "on"*

Dichen Lachman: Exceedingly hot, in a non-typical way. Which adds to the hotness of course.

Oh the disappointing I could do...

I’ll second this, right down to the ways I’m sure I could disappoint her. Her voice just adds to her allure.

It is Assassins Creed starring John Wick set in a Blade Runner universe created in an Oblivion Matrix.


Or just call it The Iliad.


I give it 8.9 of 10.


Because I hated reading The Iliad.

Just saw the pilot. Very cool! Definitely a nod to Bladerunner.

German-Tibetan descent. Nice combo.

I found an interview with her on YouTube, speaking with her natural Aussie accent. I like it.

Watched it last night and then I woke up in the middle of Episode 3, had to go back to beginning of 2 to catch up, but I like it.
You want strange then watch her in "the 100" - I almost didn't recognize her.
