    We just discovered this Starz original sci-fi series about a parallel universe. It is compelling enough that we downloaded the entire season one from DTV on-demand to catch up. A tour de force role and acting performance from JK Simmons. I love it.

    Anyone else watching?

    I started with the first couple of episodes but my S.O. did not like it. Funny you should mention it as I was considering chasing it down again.

    It has some gratuitous sex scenes that were probably included because everything on Starz has too many gratuitous sex scenes, but put those aside and the tension is palpable.

    The wife and I have watched every episode thus far and are anxiously awaiting the next season to start. It’s a bit reminiscent of Fringe but with a more “believable” storyline. And yes, good acting!
     
    DYohn and Denton like this.

    Never heard of it. We don't get showtime right now. I could do a month of "Showtime GO" or whatever there equivalent is but I'm still behind on every other series I'm watching.

    Sounds interesting, but like CJ, we don't have Starz.
