I love this show. Great production value and interesting story line. I enjoy the shift away from traditional crime dramas in the way it's based around preventing the crime rather than solving it. Also, the introduction of a scifi element to a modern day New York setting is cool. Well worth the watch. Can't wait for season 4!

The themes of redemption, hard-hitting choices, regret, and responsibility re-occur through-out the show. It also makes for compelling viewing when you have Reese, Harold, the extended group, and Harold's creation at the core of helping people and building the group of 'Team Machine'.

Outstanding character driven storyline. Framework of its universe and the battling philosophies in which characters operate are very much real life dilemmas. Only warning is start from the start to make sense of what happens. Whatever happens don't start from season 3 start at the start 😉😊☺
