I watched the first 2 eps, there were parts where I liked this, but it might have too much drama for my taste. They had the first episodes online for free a few days ago on social media, its kind of a horror, scifi space story with some cyberpunk and murder mystery and it fills out with flash backs and soap opera drama thrown in. It has potential to be a good series, has a little of that 'body snatchers' feel and Ridley Scott James Cameron Aliens going on.
