Is anyone else watching this limited series on HBO? It’s kind of remarkable television–reminds me of The Leftovers, but without any sci-fi. It’s a near-future dystopia, really just a very plausible projection from the present forward a few years. The cast are all amazing, and it manages to be highly political without being at all polemical. I just got done watching the second episode and about halfway through, I turned to my girlfriend and said “I really like this show.”
HBO is on a roll with these limited serieses, after Chernobyl (and Show Me a Hero and The Night Of.) I know that they’re just trying to keep subscribers now that GoT has ended and Westworld hasn’t aired yet, but it’s working with me.
