    Yeah, just to clarify . . . i have no problem with internet theories at all. I just dont like my brother trying to lord it over me as if he's some kind
    of TV oracle, when he's just reading stuff online. If they were genuinely his theories i wouldn't mind.

    Anyway, somebody said at work the last episode is going to be 90 mins long.
    Looking forward to it :D

    This show has been a lot of fun to watch and a few of us at work decided not to read up on theories and try and come up with our own. Boy, were we wrong on most! The ones that we did get somewhat right have been a nice mix of our interpretation of the show vs how the show is presented.

    90 mins is going to fly by, moog. Im very much looking forward to it.

    I've really enjoyed the theorizing thats been happening around the show - normally I stay away from this kind of stuff but my brain hasn't been able to rest after each episode ha! Aside from a lot of them coming true, the reveals still really took me for a turn and are done extremely well.

    That being said, I'm glad the majority of theories are out of the way - because who knows now how all hell will break loose in the season finale! :twisted:

    Yep, another 2 hour movie they took 11 hours to tell, and they managed to make the character development seem rushed anyway. Exhausting!

    I actually gave the show another chance and it sort of sucked me in. The finale was pretty predictable sans the William/Billy thing. I just kept saying over an over as I'm watching it- ohh so this is basically Bladerunner!

    I'm disappointed they killed off Ford though. Hopkins centered the show as he was always one step ahead of his rivals.

    Also a low level tech having access to changing critical codes was pretty unbelievable!

    Yeah, my brain made that connection with at least two separate scenes of bodies crashing through sheets of 'glass'.
    Not sure if that was a nod to BR or not . . . .

    The finale had some dodgy logic here and there, but overall i found it satisfying. The scene where Dolores starts
    beating up the man in black had me laughing like a loon :D

    Well I saw the bullet go through the back of his head BUT turns out anyone can be a android on this show or vice versa human! But I really do think he's done. You're not coming back from a bullet through the head.

    Two good articles I found online about the finale:

    Really great finale - its going to be a long wait till 2018 but will give me enough time to re-watch and I'll know what Im looking for this time around.. I really love how every detail of the production design is chock full of information.

    I also thought Maeve's decision to leave the train was Ford's but apparently not!

    I think the human Ford is dead - but he could have left his mind within a program?

    I'm rewatching the series now that the reveals have all happened. It's really interesting to watch with the knowledge. I'm hoping that somebody with too much time on their hands and lots of talent makes a chronological recut; I'd be interested in seeing it done that way as well.

    Unfortunately, I didn't get a screenshot when one of them asked "Would you attack humans if you could?"...

    Choked my way to the end of S1, halfheartedly attempted S2 but bailed quickly...

    Anyone care to make an argument for stepping back aboard?

    Felt season one was overrated and overblown, liked season 2 much better (unlike apparently ERRYBODY else). The Peter Mullan storyline genuinely terrified the shit out of me.

    I staggered through the first two seasons of this, hoped the third one would be a good fresh start and had to quit for good. I did like this though:



    There needs to be a Soul of Chogokin made out of that.
