Well, I'm giving this a go, but it's not exactly encouraging so far. 
About 6 episodes in, and it strikes me as trying too hard to be Blade 
Runner meets Total Recall, but without any androids or triple-breasted 
whores. I keep expecting the Miller character to start making little 
origami cranes and leaving them lying around.

Not transhumanist at all, in any meaningful sense. Detective story, 
political intrigue, morally ambiguous rebels, etc. In space. I doubt 
it'll hold my interest much longer.
