    Have all the episodes, haven't got started yet. I figured a project based on a Philip K. Dick book and executive produced by Ridley Scott must be worth a shot.

    If you know how to download and install a program, then you can get a torrent. Same procedure.

    I've only watched the pilot episode so far, that's my thought as well.

    Think it is a great premise, just watched the first episode/pilot, thought it was below average.

    In the middle of it now, love it so far. Reminds me of a noir type flick... Dark and sort of foreboding.

    One of the great Science Fiction novels.

    PKD rarely showed such discipline in his novels.
    Very little filler stringing plot lines together.
    Nice character development.
    Love the series but it moves much faster than the novel.
    Conflict between the Japanese and Nazis was subtle.

    Just picked up the book, It doesn't seem very long.
    After watching Season 1 i imagined it would be 1000 pages or so
