I am not sure why, but I am loving this series. It kinda reminds me of The Fountain.

I also think I'm falling in love with Brit Marling. I'd like to spend a day or so hanging out with her and seeing how she thinks. Apparently she's behind this show and some other 'quirky' sci-fi.

That did seem kinda weird. And left the whole story open. LOL Was the story she told the Breakfast Club true? At the very least, she WAS having premonitions.

I really wanna know if that was Braille on "Fate's" face, and if so, what did it say??

Since I'm officially on Christmas vacation, I thought I would stay up late and binge watch this show. I really liked it until about the 6th episode and then it just got dumb. I ended up going to bed at 4:00 this morning confused and asking myself WTF did I just watch. It was a very weird show and I have questions.

Just started it. I don't have an opinion at this point, but I am being drawn in. I will give it a couple more episodes.

I'll try not to post any spoilers.

There are some interesting Reddit threads/posts that answered some of my questions, siggers. Some of it addressed things I'd noticed and not given any significance to, or things that didn't make a lot of sense.

The wife watched it and liked it.

I saw the first episode and second half of the last episode. I saw the whole story.

Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

I didn't even finish the first episode. Just could not get into it. Will try again on another day, maybe I was tired.

We binge watched it. Thought it was fantastic.

I watched the first two episodes earlier this evening and couldn't get into it. Don't think I'll be watching the rest.

Too bad though. I like a lot of stuff Jason Isaacs has been in.

Very strange show, I watched it all and still don't really under stand what happened.

Was she lying? Was there something mystical about it or was it just simply that the kids distracted the guy at the end with simple bravery?

I don't think the kids distracting the gunman was mystical. But she did not put those scars on her back herself. And she did foresee certain events.

Did this. Well, watched the whole episode. Gotta say I'm satisfied I didn't watch the rest of the episodes.

And when they first started doing that "dance" I about fell out of my chair laughing. I'm sure in the episodes I missed it explained it and it's really serious and everything, but having not seen them, it was completely humorous.
