    Is anyone watching this? It’s quite an intriguing sci-fi in which people undergo a procedure that causes them to have no personal memories at work and no work memories in their personal lives. With John Turturro, Patricia Arquette, Adam Scott, and Christopher Walken (in a small role so far.)

    Watched the 2 episodes released so far and enjoyed it enough to watch it next week. Looking forward to the reveals to come.

    I’m watching. Really enjoyed the first two episodes (all that’s available so far). As someone who worked in corporate offices for quite a few years, I’ll say from experience that, although the show is deliberately exaggerating, some of the scenes in the company offices aren’t that far off from reality (minus the science-fiction premise).

    I’m enjoying it very much so far. A fairly original idea—something rare these days. 9 episodes will be plenty though, depending on how things go. The problem with most series is they get dragged out too much.

    It would seem this show could go off in all kinds of directions. I hope it chooses an intelligent path. Pleased so far.

    I didn’t understand the scene where she exited to the stairwell until today (day after watching first two episodes).

    Many things I don’t understand…such as how do these employees keep their sanity…essentially in their minds their lives exist only of 8 hour shifts at the office.

  9. We’re watching and waiting to see how the story line progresses. Just vague hints of the political or even more insidious motivations at play.

    Yes I saw it in my up next list and thought it was already available.

    Can’t wait. That scene with Chris Walken and John Turturro was so much fun.

    It sure looked "Kaufman-esque" and therefore, intrigued me. Interesting cast. We'll maybe get into this after my loved one is done binging on "La Casa De Paper/Money Heist."

    Indeed. When they were admiring that scary painting of a man whipping someone, Walken said, "It calms people."

    Up to the 3rd episode. The characters are starting to deepen for me. Turturro is a hoot. Patricia Arquette is always interesting. Definitely enjoying this while it messes with my mind.
     
  16. Starting to pick up steam. Worth the watch so far.

    I'm watching but, so far, it's kinda repetitive and a little boring. I keep hoping for a major plot twist in the near future. I'm going to hang in there to see what happens.

    Absolutely love this show. I only wish I could binge it all in a day.

  19. We prefer whole season release exactly for that reason.

    There is something to be said for waiting a week for each episode.

  21. I suppose commercial considerations take precedence but we’ve become adapted to binge watching lately. Only bad part is if it’s really good it’s over too soon.
