Was debating heavily whether or not to do this as a season thread or episode thread. But, since it's based on a relatively popular movie and it has the science fiction hook to it, I'll do it as episode threads.

I feel there's zero buzz about this show. I predict it'll be a one and done season if it even gets that far.

The buzz is negative.

I'm going to pass on this one.

I love the movie so I'll check it out, but I haven't heard good reviews about this one.

I will check this out. I liked the movie and the concept. I hope it gets a better treatment than Almost Human.

I liked the movie a lot too. I didn't realize the show was starting today! I'll definitely check it out.

Like the movie a lot but this sounds like a procedural.

Pass.

I'm in to start.

Love the movie and just hope they don't screw it up too much.

Speilberg seems to be involved so that might help.

Almost Human was a science fiction cop procedural as well. I recall most liked it here. It only get cancelled because FOX didn't own it and it was apparently a money loser.

FOX owns Minority Report.

Almost Human was only partly a procedural. If Minority Report has some sort of overarching story lines I may give it a try.

Is this series in direct continuity with the movie? Perhaps we'll finally find out whether the ending was all a dream or not.

It's supposed to take place 10 years after the events of the movie.

The 2065 on this show feels a lot like the 2015 from Back to the Future.

I had low expectations, but I thought it was pretty entertaining. I'm in for now.

They're the Washington Red Clouds, formerly the Washington Redskins.

I was looking forward to this since I enjoyed the movie, but the show felt too light hearted and amateur to me.

Almost Human did it better.

Will not continue to watch

Loved the movie and thought the first episode was OK. I'll stick around for a few more episodes.

Not bad, but not great either. Setup has some potential. I personally liked Almost Human better and that kicked it into gear right off the bat with the chemistry between the leads and the humor. I like Meagan Good (she looks good in the leather), but Stark Sands is a little too goofy to me to be taken seriously as a male protagonist. We'll see how things go. Looks like they spent some money on this show, but I'm curious to see how future episodes look. The most money is usually spent on the Pilot. These kind of genre shows don't come around too often, so I'll continue to support it for now.

unfortunately, this is going to be DOA.
It drew an overnight audience of 2.3 in households which is pretty bad. The demos haven't come out yet.
