Trailer here, the premise starts off dumb and predictable but it goes in unexpected directions and the show is hilarious throughout. Also it has the very hot Britt Lower.

When she crossed over, she was just a ship. But when she came back... she was bullshit!

The James Cameron episode is one of the funniest things i've seen on TV.

Just watched that one and although I'm finding the show a bit patchy, there are some hilarious bits in it:
The whole episode was definitely a high-point so far.

They go for the 'low-hanging fruit' joke a bit too often I'd say, but it hasn't really annoyed or bored me at any time.
I'm just happy we're apparently in the tv-era of high(ish) concept sci-fi comedy now, so I hope it finds an audience.

I was going to make a new thread for this, but no, here it is, three pages back.

Anyway, I'm about halfway through season 2 now.  Recommend this if it hasn't been on your radar.  It mines a lot of tropes from 80s/90s movies, as one might guess from the trailer, but it manages to be its own thing.  

Season 1 is mostly Back to the Future and Terminator homage, and season 2 is more like... Road Warrior?  Maybe?  I'm still not quite sure where it's going but I'm enjoying the ride.

Glad more people are watching this, it's pretty hilarious. Wolf is the best part of both seasons.

The Wolf restaurant episode is one of the finest episodes of TV ever made. In any genre on any station.

So they are basically antivaxxers right? cause its been two seasons and while the biotics got pretty brutal about forcing the cure on them there's never been a good reason given for not taking it.

Didn't the war first break out because there was a shortage of the cure and people rioted? I can see that happening in a rich people/poor people world.

The first season did a pretty good job at making it seem neither side was right. The rebellion actually came across in several episodes as a bunch of nutjobs.

And the second season gave some clue as to the kinds of things the biotics in season 1 might have been glossing over when they described the utopian future.

Well the world in season 2 is completely different, and in that one the rebels are not just antivaxxers but climate change deniers also.

I'm filling in the blanks a bit that if Holo-Joel Osment was able to rise to power as a genocidal dictator in that future (while convincing everyone in his society, himself included, that he was a benevolent dictator), odds are pretty good that somebody like him was running the show in the "original" future as well.

Like Riggs said, neither side is "right".  The rebels are illiterate, violent morons (and yes, antivaxxers and anti-technology in general).  The empire is literally out to destroy the planet so everyone can live in the Matrix (because curing all disease wasn't good enough).  Between the two the rebels seem a little more palatable but really the future overall is not a happy place.
