    Not sure I fully understand what's going on with the plot summary but I'm in

    Howard Silk (J.K. Simmons) is a lowly cog in the bureaucratic machinery of a Berlin-based United Nations spy agency. When Howard discovers that his organization safeguards the secret of a crossing into a parallel dimension, he is thrust into a shadow world of intrigue, danger, and double cross... where the only man he can trust is his near-identical counterpart from this parallel world. The show explores themes of identity, fate and lost love, posing the eternal question, "what if our lives could have been different"?

    I've watched every episode. Great show so far and one of my favorite actors ever since Oz.

    I've liked every episode. It's more of a slow burn than an outright thriller, which is frankly a better formula. I find shows like Sons of Anarchy and Breaking Bad, while great, had to reach such heights every week that they became repetitive.

    I especially like the flashbacks. I hope they do a lot more of those. I really hope this show has a long run.

    Re watching season 1 because wife and I were having trouble remembering all the stuff that happened last season. Still great the second time around.

    Just started. Love it.

    I’m four eps in - what I don’t understand is if this all “occurred” in 1987, then why does the Baldwin character have the same memory of the event with her dad at age 10 or whatever? She’s at most 30.

    Even if they stumble occasionally, this is one of the few truly interesting shows out there right now

    Fuck off with that news.

    This stupid fucking country really can't enjoy shows where you have to think. Rubicon on AMC comes to mind, lasted 1 season while walking dead is on like season 10

    Brutal way to end the show. Just somehow reboot it in the US so they can move filming here. Should save some money.
