[ACT] What shows have you been watching?

While I only know a synopsis of the book, I think the series uses it only as loose inspiration. Feels like a Heroes/Sliders hybrid. I just finished 2x01 and while much of the acting is good and Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa is giving a phenomenal performance, most of the characters either seem inconsequential or flat out irritating. Adolph Hitler is probably the most sympathetic character in the show. I suspect that I'll enjoy season 2 more than 1 as I found 1 to be drawn out with so many encounters that appear to be wasting my time. Something keeps me watching it. Possibly just seeing Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa with an important role.

I can't tell if Burn Gorman is awful or a genius. I find it hard to see him as tough, although he's better than Tim Roth trying to act tough or Leonardo Dicaprio trying to act.

Pros: Tagawa, general acting, a slightly more objective view of Hitler, sci-fi, good to see Dick's work being used

Cons: script, drawn out plotlines that aren't remotely essential or important, veering too far from source, unlikeable characters, I never got the impression that Hitler would have wanted to occupy the U.S. in our history although his irritation toward Canada might bring him over in a destructive capacity, [edit] theme song
