Goofs

The way the Senator was described as being killed would not have resulted in law enforcement using deadly force. While police would respond in force to an active shooter report, in modern times, the police would also know before arrival who the property owner was, and local police would know it was the residence of the Senator's son. Most relevant, police look at anyone exiting a residence as to whether they are a threat. Unless the Senator was holding something that appeared to be a weapon (which was never disclosed in dialog), police would not have used deadly force. See more »

Good and Bad
1 April 2019 | by barlowralphSee all my reviews

The Good: This was the first episode I've seen of this show (missed season 1 entirely). I thought it was a good storyline, and I learned a bit about virtual reality type on line games and the lingo. I'm not sure how I felt about the verdict, which I won't reveal here.

The Bad: I absolutely HATE the so-called songs used by this and many other shows in the soundtrack, most of which have nothing whatsoever to do with what's going on in the show. It's awful! It detracts a LOT from the show as a whole. Please producers, stop doing that!
