The 12mm that killed the android?
The out-of-policy 12mm?

We can stop him before he leaves the building if you want.
No. Let him hang onto the gun for the moment. I'm almost more interested in what he plans on doing with it than where it came from.

This is far more Blade Runner than Total Recall. It bears very little relation to its namesake Arnie film. However, I would say that it is also far superior. It has to be said that David Hume, the main character, is a bit on the stereotypical side for this type of affair. However, this weakness is more than made up for by Karl Pruner's portrayal of his partner Farve. The series as a whole has a great suspenseful ongoing story with many twists and clever sub-plots, while fitting in good independent stories to each episode. I was expecting cheesy TV sci-fi, but instead found an original, engrossing series that is by far the best thing I've seen in quite some time.
