    I've watched the first 3 episodes so far, and I am deeply impressed. The quality of the writing and the actors is top notch. They have done a wonderful job creating a world with depth that makes you want to poke your head into all the nooks and crannies and explore the background of everything and everyone.

    spoilers I'm very curious about Mother, and if the person (s?) who created her deliberately converted a "necromancer" war machine, or if they where forced to use one because that was all they had to work with.

    The two militant opposition to religious beliefs by mother is an interesting counterbalance to the militant theism of the people from the ark. Too often in sci-fi religion gets painted with a one color brush as "bad", and here the people from the ark certainly aren't great, the opposing atheistic zealotry displayed by mother makes an interesting contrast. It also makes her character even more interesting when compared to Father, who is clearly less focused on religion and more on ensuring the survival of the human race.

      I hadn't heard of it either until this weekend, when a friend mentioned they had "acquired" it. Wife and I were both blown away, can't wake until the rest come out.
