Very enjoyable show but don't buy it on Google. Buy it on Amazon Prime which delivers each episode on a timeline basis and also works correctly. I don't partciularly like Amazon but at least it works. Though I have hundreds of shows and movies, there are just too many issues with streaming on Google Play. Alan Tudyk is one of my favorite actors. Lots know him from Firefly but it was in "Tucker and Dale vs. Evil" that I really started to appreciate his timing. Since then I've watched his other movies and enjoyed them. If you're old enough to remember "My Favorite Martian" you would get a kick out of this. Well, the premise is roughty similar but it's quite different in tone.

One star for enjoyable show and lousy streaming policy. Episodes 1 and 2 available on Amazon, same price without the theft and zero customer support of Play store. Time to contact consumer protection agencies and remember this institutionalized thievery by Google when voting in the next election. SyFy should be ashamed to do business with such criminals. Also available on Xfinity, (my ISP) cheaper in SD.

Great play on the politically "hot" catch phrase. The first episode has me hooked not let see if they can set that hook. Alan seems to be using the same quirky personality he had for Firefly. Now I see Google Play does not let me see the new episodes immeadiately after the first play on SYFY. So this is the last video I buy on Google. Stupid of them.
