    I watched the first episode and thought it interesting enough to watch a second and then I was hooked. Loved it so much, I couldn't stop watching. I hope they do a second season.

    Yeah I only watched one episode a few days ago. I told myself I wouldn't binge yesterday but after episode 2 I couldn't help myself and that orgy was insane!! lol

    They are very worthy of a second season. I hope they do too.

    The show was amazing.
    Slow to begin with, there's not a lot of things going on with each character but I do feel like you get a good sense of everyone's personality and story. Also considering it's only a few episodes and a lot of story lines they did a great job.

    I damn hope they get a second series out ASAP.

    Loved it, Riley... such a tragic past ! :O Wolfgang & Will... soooo cuuuuuuute ! icon_rolleyes.gif I noticed that every character was some kind of a cliche of the people of his/her country, and the interaction between them are funny and touching ! BUT, there is ONE character I did not like that much : Litto icon_confused.gif

    He's supposed to be a caricature of a "tele novela" portrayer, but it seamed like he never gets out of this cliche !!! Maybe it's because of the "frame into the frame", since he's the only "actor portraying an actor", but it's like Litto is always overplaying his reactions and facial expressions... it felt off comparing to the 7 others. Somehow I would have expected him to be more authentic outside of the movie set scenes. Besides, his storyline seemed more trivial than the others', very self centered.

    Aside from that, very good show, the visual transitions, the way they show us how they interact with each other, well done.


    Looking forward to a 2nd season too !

    Just finished it today. It's got a handful of flaws, but it's a great show. I'm really hoping they renew it. We should be finding out in the next few weeks.

    It was also surprisingly funny. I laughed out loud so many times.

    I watched it. I really appreciated the idea, but I kind of disliked how - unlike Heroes, another TV show that has a similar kind of premisse - the build up does not lead the characters to meet in real person in the last episode. Yes, I do understand that the idea that they are able to connect with each other does not make THAT necessary, but the truth is that their stories still seem too disconnected from each other and I seriously hope they will intertwine it better in the next season.
    Apart from that, great show with a very queer aesthetics.

    I really enjoyed it! For me it's a series I want to own when it's released on DVD/ Blu-ray. icon_biggrin.gif

    I like the main idea of being connected to multiple people across different cultures. Don't get me wrong the show has it's flaws, but I think if you go into it with an open mind those people will enjoy it. There were some crazy and fun moments in the show that left me shocked but also caused me to laugh for a while. I definitely am looking forward to season two! icon_cool.gif

    I've watched it. I give it a B-. There are some elements I really like. The concept is great. The visuals and scenes are great. It has a great indie feel to it. Despite the complexity, I think it does a good job of introducing the characters to each other. BUT, there are a couple things that frustrate me a little.

    1. There are too many characters. So its hard to feel connected with them all. It feels like the storyline and character development are competing. To me, they could cut out the blonde and the gay male couple and introduce them in season 2 leaving the audience curious about what their story is. As it stands, you're introduced to so many people at once that it makes the story choppy and confusing.
    2. Too much stuffed into the crowded character lineup. The african fighting a drug lord to get medicine for his mother who is dying of AIDS. The beautiful gay male couple being blackmailed by a stalker boyfriend who beats his model gf. The Asian successful business woman who is a martial arts expert by night and goes to jail to protect her kid brother who is committing corporate fraud. The Indian woman who is not in love with her arranged husband and witnesses her father in law's death. The lesbian transgender couple who is denied visitation by a bigotted family while trying to escape a surgeon hell bent on giving her a lobotomy. Each of these character stories are AT LEAST their own movie.

    Erik101 saidStarted watching it and just like any tv show, the pilot episode is rather dull because they have to introduce the characters, plot, blah blah. But I'm getting more hooked with each episode.

    What I like most about this show.......a very diverse cast!


    Agreed
