I'm looking forward to this show. If it is at all inspired by the investigative book, "Crossing The Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Oil Age" it should be pretty scary. That book tackles the role of government and big business in ordering the affairs of the world, using terrifying tactics that include warfare and population control by way of covert and illegal actions. Quite frankly, the book scared the hell out of me. It is my hope that the show does the same for its viewers and gets the audience thinking. It will be a shame if the show trivializes the importance of the book in any way. I could see people laughing at the absurdity of the claims the show will make (in the name of fiction). The cast looks solid and AMC has put out some great programming so next to THE WALKING DEAD, I'm going to give this a serious shot.
