This has an impressive look from the previews. The first episode barely held my attention, I skipped through trying to find anything better ... which I guess it kind of did once the robot was revealed. I started the second episode to try and give it further chance and it was the same droll pace and acting.
Maybe I just miss the old school sci-fi when it wasn't mamby-pampby. This has 'safe space' 'blue-ribbon crowd' written all over it.
