The instinct to avenge a partner's death is something you don't see anymore.
Yeah, I can see how that would get lost when you live your life under a surveillance camera.
You're not suggesting the attempts to make this a safer and more perfect world have actually resulted in a loss of individual freedom, are you?

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.
