I was surprised to like it despite the low initial ratings
This show is a lesson for me not to buy into the opinion of others, before I made up my own mind.
I think what happened here (and I am not cynical) is that SiFi fans saw the trailer and did hope for a light high-tech-show but found a concept which is more intellectual then what they were going for.
This together that non-french viewers (like me) either have to watch dubbed (which always looses in quality), or to watch it in french with subtitles (as I do).
And when doing so it makes it even more challenging for not being able to turn away from the monitor for even a minute without instantly loosing out on the overall arch of the story.
So whenever I catch myself in having missed out a sequence I have the patience to get back to where I last was focussed to continue from there again.
And If one does that, I think it will become clear that this series is not just some airy-fairy random emotional stuff, but a very constructive criticism on society and a warning about technical implications of near-future developments of artificial-"intelligence".
Apart from it being an thrilling drama, it also raises some philosophical questions about whether it is our own identity, which makes us love, or whether we are simply susceptible to hormonal stimulations triggered by implants.
This then raises ethical questions whether anyone has the right to manipulate or surveil us - not only as much as it is done today already, but at a level unknown only to the ones of us, who do regular personality work on them selves.
