I'm not sure it was even worth posting a thread for this one, it wasn't entertainingly bad like "Inhumans", just bad-bad. Still, in case anyone else sat through it too, might as well have there be somewhere to commiserate.

Seems a bit like A.P.B., which also failed to present the application of this kind of technology as horrifying.

Richard T. Jones should know better.

I just want to know if the title is meant to be bitterly ironic

I got to see the pilot during CBS's International Screenings, and it wasn't the trainwreck I expected it to be. I feel like it could be decent if they dive into exploring the problematic aspects of the concept, but I don't hold out much hope that they will.

I saw some of this at a bar with the sound off and thought Jeremy Piven was looking pretty good these days. Then I found out what it was about and screamed into a pillow. B+

It was a fine, by the numbers procedural, complete with a Rhys Darby-alike mascot dude. The evil part of this show is the subtle normalizing of bad trends. "We all gave up our privacy to watch cat videos on our phones" is such a WTF, complete with layers of question begging.
