Was a very good book, but then I think almost everything Dick wrote was good. Even tho Dick's works have become the basis of quite a few films now, I still want to see better translations than most I can think of....and from the pilot not sure this is gonna do it for me but I'll give a few more episodes a shot soon.I watched the first 2 episodes and will continue with the rest. I really like it. I never read the book, but love the concept and execution of it in the series.
I had a hard time, but I pushed on through, not a football fan and no NBA today, so I settled in for the whole thing. It was awfully slow and plodding, it finally got interesting to me in the latter stages, but it was a struggle. I liked the first couple of eps, and I liked the last 2 or 3, the middle was too slow and dry.Are people afraid to post a dissenting opinion??? I am probably in the minority.
The concept is great I admit but the execution is slow and plodding here. You need to give me something to make it past episode 3. If this picks up past episode 5 or 6 well congrats. Too many other things to watch - like paint dry. The dialogue is thin. The characters are a snoozefest.
I had watched the first two episode but forgot details by the time the rest were released. I went back and watched all of them and it helps a bit. Still, if you want much more understanding, Google The Grasshopper Lies Heavy.It might have been more interesting if I hadn't seen the first two eps and started the binge from the start.
They did explain it, it's a reference to the Bible, Ecclesiastes 12:5 (which Juliana mistakenly thought referred to the time she was supposed to meet her contact in Canon City).OK, I watched it and enjoyed it. If the movie would have explained what The Grasshopper Lies Heavy referred to, I would have enjoyed it a whole lot more and the ending would have made more sense.
