Yeah- Both are big NOs on my list. The first episode was boring. The group of bad ass military that seems to be running through all three shows wants to be intriguing but looks like more of the same with military weapons.
The colored book just seems a waste to me. RK conceived and executed as a black& white and I think it looks best in that format. More power to him if it works well.
The last 3 eps weren't that bad. All threads came together, and we learned some things. Characters really jelled.
I'm actually looking forward to S2.
