Actually I think this show deserves use of hallucinogenic drugs before watching, same as the writers are taking when they do the eps. There's no other way to explain totally off-the-wall stuff like...

And yet Comcast can exclude its content from caps after the NBCU merger?? That's exactly what's happening today on Xboxes etc. and soon to be deployed new streaming service. WTF FCC?

Not seeing this issue here in the ATL, Comcast on WXIA and NBCSN. Great PQ and sound quality.

Nice twist at the end with the detective synth, my assumption here is that the government is involved with certain 'test subjects' to possibly use in place of real people.

I am curious to see if this service is exempt from Comcast's own data caps (I'm in a capped area) - according to the terms of the NBCU acquisition agreement, they're not allowed to favor their own...

Fictional? Sure, but it has mostly been good on the realism for a period piece. I would expect no less from the network that produced Mad Men.

No, they're not - the Tank Battle game in particular is not ansi/text, it's the primitive CG of the time. You must not have programmed either the Atari or the C64s of the time (I did), so you really...
