I am just glad the DeWitt character has been redeemed.

It's a real shame the show wasn't this interested in the first season. It's a pretty good show now and I really did not care for S1. They should have had Echo as she is since the pilot, a self aware character who can access all the imprints at will.

Who else thinks that the "future" scenes that we saw in Epitaph One were taking place in the attic, as seen in last night's ep, and that it' not REALLY the future?

Awesome. I'm seriously loving the show, of course, because every show I love gets cancelled.

I didn't realize the whole "Restless" vibe, but you guys are right about the similarities, and that Restless was much better.

But the first ep tonight was riveting.
Gott wonder, though, why they woke Tria up as herself, when a little bit of Ninja girl ability would have been DAMN handy in that situation. Unless it was to give Tony/Victor someone he had to protect, thus helping to bring him around.

I didn't quite understand how Clyde was able to become Arcane but still it was pretty good.

I guess our team is assembled now, the next episodes should be interesting.

I loved "Stop Loss," but the execution of "The Attic" reminded me too much of the countless Holodeck-goes-awry episodes for me to really enjoy it, though I do appreciate what they were trying to do.

Funny I preferred The Attic to Stop Loss.

I thought The Attic was better as well. It really feels like the show is building up to something big.

The only thing that I wish was a bit more consistent, was the pacing of time, and a visual/audible reference to what the date is (more often, that is). That's something that lets me get into the story some, oddly enough, especially when many of the episodes seem to take place within days (if not hours) of each other. I wish some of Rossum's plans surfaced a bit earlier, but take what you can get, I guess.

Also...


As for "Epitaph One" being in the attic? It's possible, Joss has done other interviews for this series that says something goes one way, while it actually went another way. I think it's real though, considering what we saw. I think the real mistake is probably that "Epitaph One" is set in 2019, a few years earlier would probably have made more sense, unless Armageddon was several years earlier, and 2019 portrays things as if that's what a good chunk of the words population know life as what we saw,

I think that Epitaph One took place a good bit after things went bad. The Actuals seemed to be used to what was around them for the most part.

As for the timing of episodes. Echo thought it was 2010 and they may have assumed that the episode was going to air then when they picked the date.

I'm sure they thought at the time it would be in '10. After all who would have expected them to start airing two episodes a night?

My husband didn't. He was , especially at me . After I explained it to him, he chuckled.

I do hate having to explain a joke.

I assumed they removed something major from Paul (like the ability to experience happiness) rather than just a few memories.
