Clever, well written, and thought provoking. Carrie Ann Moss is a welcome addition. Her character is intellectual, tactless, driven, highly intelligent and an interesting juxtaposition of social morality (telling her new boss that the reason she judges him so poorly is because he uses his genius and enormous wealth to build human toys instead of developing solutions for world hunger, disease, etc) and self absorbed, egotistical, grandiosity. The premise of a society where life like, almost human, androids are common place and present in almost all aspects of daily life is an interesting study on how society will adapt and adjust. In addition, there is software out in the wild capable of affecting consciousness in an the degree that they love, hate, cry, fear, and respond emotionally to the experiences they had prior to consciousness in that there memories from when they were used as sex toys, or abused as laborers, and there basic human interactions now shape their schematic of the world. They now have to learn to navigate emotions and feelings, how to deal with their memories, and who they are all the while being hunted for being unique.

This series is AMAZING!! Like others have said, it really makes you think and wonder what life would be like if we did get this fare with Artificial Intelligence. The actor/actress were brilliantly picked. I also loved the family drama. Real life drama really made me connect with the show. I will admit I didn't think it would be all that good, but the first episode really caught my attention. I couldn't stop watching it after that. I can't wait till the next episode. I hope this series last a long time. I would most definitely recommend this series to anyone I meet.

Besides the portrayal of crappy parenting, the series isn't bad. Unfortunatley, this is a trend in Hollywood where the children are in control and the parents seeks their advice. That is bass ackwards. Life don't work out too well that way. Kids need guidance, rules and tough love at times. Not the parents being their buddies!
