I think it's because the 1st person narration and the grittiness/seedier side of life presentation give it a Fight Club like feel, so peopl are inclined to think that.

And I agree with you. The...

Not surprised. I know a lot of people do. I just thought Dune is too complex and too long a book to be treated in that length a movie.

I still maintain they just don't know what to do with her. I would bet that the producers/directors probably had the concept for her character development that we saw in season 1 and 2 from the...

It's a good time for sci-fi fans. So many choices of series to watch. Beats the heck out of the 1970s when I was a kid when the best option was reruns of STOS and Twilight Zone. LOL

The key to how good the series ends up being is clearly the character development. The writers seem to be doing OK so far. It's not Mr. Robot writing (speaking of new series), but still could...

He still obviously likes Kate. After all, it's only been days in his memory since he set off to find her in Wayward Pines. So why would he want to send or off to her doom? And then, he really does...

Use Windows Notepad (enable word wrap so it's easy to read) or some other text editor, not a word processor, and you'll have no more font embedding issues.

I don't know. The change I don't like is Nurse Pamela being made into Pilcher's sister for the series. I don't see a need for it. Maybe they are going to change more of the backstory (don't want to...

So I enjoyed the 2nd episode. It's an action-oriented sci fi show.

But, what I don't understand is how it got a rating of 79% on rottentomatoes: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/tv/killjoys/s01/....

I don't want to speculate from here. I read the books awhile back, and I'd be afraid I might give something away. It's hard to keep straight where the show is and what is has covered vs. the books. ...

As the tv show points out, it was 2000 years of evolution. One could guess that there was a societal collapse that prevented the type of gene research you mention. Besides, Pilcher explains in the...
