Thanks for the review. An intriguing, slow burning show that I haven't heard of. Luckily someone has uploaded the entire first season on Youtube and I've just watched it all. After the mess that is Jupiter Ascending, it's great to see the Wachowskis come back with something worthwhile.
Lito and Nomi are the two characters that resonate with me the most, and it's nice that they portray the reality of life in the developing world with a certain amount of depth.
The action scenes are kept short, to the point and they're really fun to watch. I was kept on the edge of my seat, not knowing when I would get to see Wolfgang's penis again.

The allure of said penis only makes sense because Wolfgang is the bad boy archetype, and because of the rather unusual context where it first appears in, namely Kala's ornate, traditional wedding. Otherwise, sure, it looks just like any other Caucasian penis.
At least that's the way it is to me.

I know War and Peace is a classic and all, but at this point, I have to choose between reading something like that and actually improving my Malayalam reading fluency so that reading the sort of stuff that's kind of strewn all over our house in a language I hear around me every day might eventually not take forever. I'm sticking with Malayalam. And I don't watch any series, so...

Cliffhangers are really disrespectful.

I really hope they ruined his character for a good reason, and it'd better lead to a satisfying conclusion. Because that was genuinely horrible to watch. The only other time GoT made me feel this queasy was when Joffrey ordered all Robert's bastards hunted down, including the infant son of a prostitute in Littlefinger's brothel.
