The name is a turnoff (much like Peaky Blinders and boy was I wrong) but give it a chance.

I highly recommend it to any comic book/sci-fi/fantasy fan.

I just know of this because it's made by the lead singer of My Chemical Romance.

Just finished it. One of the best Netflix originals. Fan-(bleep)-tastic.

I really like this show, its different. I'm only 7 episodes in, but I really enjoy it. I liked Tom Hopper in Black Sails, and briefly in GoT as well.

It was quite good. Fairly predictable plot, but the actors really carried the show with their performances. Ellen Paige was usual talented self, but the kid who played 5 was a revelation. Robert Sheehan was channeling an American version of his Misfits character, Nathan, so he was incredibly entertaining. The guy who played the dad and the two actors who played the assassins did an incredible job too. I really hope Netflix picks it up for season 2.

Gonna check this out. I'm a big fan of sci fi and comic genres. If you guys haven't yet, check out the show Legion on FX.

It's a really, really fun watch. Just good old escapist entertainment. Great music, visually stunning and fun characters and performances.

Finished it over the weekend. It was really slow at first but things picked up in the last couple of episodes. Season 1 felt a bit derivative of the X-Men/Dark Phoenix story but the creators of the show blew away anything Fox ever did with X-Men.

Look forward to Season 2.

Checked it out thanks to this thread. Hated it at first. Stuck with it, finished it.

Really disliked it. Glad you guys enjoyed it.

Glad you took the time to post in a thread about a show you hated to tell us how much you hated it . . .

Early in the season it felt a little like Watchmen. By the end of the season I felt like I was watching a Netflix Marvel show.

Yes, why I also checked it out. No, didn't hate it but didn't really like it. Yes, s-t-u-c-k--it--o-u-t--e-v-e-r-y--f-r-i-c-k-i-n-g--e-p-i-s-o-d-e and still didn't really like it. Yes, glad others enjoyed it. Yes, I suppose I should have something good to say or not bother with this, so I'll say the (bleep) running Volvo was a clever quirky touch.

Sometimes its about the journey and not the destination. Obviously, this was not about the destination as we ended up where we started, but the journey was about as entertaining as the drive to Sacramento on Highway 5.
