Jack's Review
A pretty decent start to the series...that sadly is one of really only two good episodes. The show turns into a kludge of several other (and better) sci-fi stories: Mass Effect (the super-artificial tentacle creature are the Reapers), Blade Runner (synthetics on Mars turn on humans and are eventually hunted), Galatica (nobody knows who or where the synthetics are), and 2001: A Space Odyssey (come on, the ending with Data is DIRECTLY from 2001!). The other oddball thing we see is a lack of imagination. The city shots are basically LA with some mild CGI lights added. It feels like the team making the show only watched a few episodes - like they were on in the background of the writing room and that's as far as they went.
