Has anyone watched this? I really like Chloƫ Moretz and I love William Gibson, so I was always going to watch it.

Let's forget for a moment the divergence from the book, because when it comes to novel adaptations, that's pretty much a given, that it won't be as good / follow the exact same story beats.

I did enjoy it, but I found the opening episode to be the strongest point. The rest of it was a bit of a meandering mess. I was also disappointed at how little the nanobots and Garbage Patch were present.

Still tentatively looking forward to series 2!
To be honest, I hadn't even heard of it yet. I may check it out because of Chloe Grace Moretz. Seeing that it is also a novel adaptation, I will have to wait until after watching it to read the novel so as to have an unbiased opinion rather than ruining the show outright by reading the likely superior book first.
