I really must sit down and give this another go. Everyone raves about it as the best sci-fi ever, but I've tried twice now and just can't get into it. Second time I watched the whole of season one and at the end of it realised I had no idea who most of the characters were or what was happening... a whole season and none of it had stayed in my head at all.

For me, the character I most followed was Miller, player by Thomas Jane. He was the least idealistic, most practical character. Miller is like a "Deckard" from "Blade Runner," in terms of personality. He's just going through life, nothing to believe in, just a down in the dumps kind of guy. Thomas Jane is a great actor, so he was easy to believe and therefore the character I was most interested in following along. He has a character arc that extends into season 2 as well.

The show is a slow burn, that ramps up to a mid-season climax, then begins another slow burn to a climax at the season's end.

This is sort of like Game of Thrones and other series like it. It takes awhile to build up but by the middle of the season you start to see what they build up to.

I watched the first season in one sitting over a Sunday when it was snowy and nasty out. Believe me the early episodes was a bit of a chore but I stuck with it because I liked the premise. By the time fifth or so episode I was hooked.
