I'm really enjoying this show. Tandy is a far more interesting character than I expected her to be. I might like the show twice as much, though, if her dad's first computer had been a Commodore.

One thing that is interesting is that while the show surely must be moving them towards a romantic relationship, both have current relationships with interesting and likeable characters. I don't want either of those two actors to go away. Although the girl seems a bit stalker-y. There may be something suspicious going on with her.

I totally don't understand how they were saved that night, nor what the connection between them means.

Some people in the previous thread thought this is a slow-burn, and I agree, in a good way. The pacing is just right for me. There's been urgency in each episode, making it compelling, but through these first three episodes the show is holding a lot back. Which is fine with me.

Ivan, I agree with you on the relationships.

I admit, they may be in New Orleans but I didn't expect this to head towards voodoo. The Whole Foods bath made me laugh.

The double dream sequences were interesting (moral of the story: do something different) but also odd. I'm not really a dream sequence person though.

Yes, you two better talk!

Seems like in addition to their physical powers, both have some sort of mind powers, which probably resulted in them having the somewhat shared dream sequence. I really like this so far, the characters are immediately captivating and I applaud that they're tackling current social issues head on.
