    Yeah, I watched the pilot when they released it online a couple of weeks back, GREAT show, big fan, really hope it gets picked up... But it's a clever original idea and has no superheroes or love interests, it doesn't stand a chance.

    p.s. There's actually already a thread about it, but it got buried

    My homeboy who added me on Steam chatted it to me so I watched it. At first I thought it was a bit cliche but man it's actually pretty cool if you're a nerd.

    Main character REALLY sells "freak" lol.

    I absolutely love this show. Hacking, ddosing, cyber security really interest me. Possibly I'll go to school for it too.

    Just one question though,

    how did fsociety get a rootkit inside allsafe's servers with just a ddos attack?

    I thought episode 2 was last night. And then they just repeated the same episode 1 back to back on USA. Waste of time.

    Just watched the pilot and loved it. Feels like a spiritual successor to Dexter.

    Well that's an awful plan... Maybe the network got hacked .

    So you're saying... you HAVE no source. Good to know.

    What on earth are you talking about? Did you even follow the link? There's multiple sources. USA Today, Screen Rant, HollywoodReporter, Rotten Tomatoes, tvline, EW, tv.com etc. etc. all reporting that USA has renewed it. I did the LMGTFY because it was extremely easy to find that information on your own, well it should have been, apparently it wasn't.

    Oh don't get me wrong, I googled, I checked, I saw...

    But if you're going to post something like that, post a source. If you don't and someone asks for a source, supply one. It's just... The done thing.

    If you didn't post one and someone asks, don't post a snarky reply.

    You said I didn't have a source. I did, I might not have posted it, sorry I didn't know it was "The done thing" but that's not the same as not having one. I didn't think it was necessary because it was very easily verified. It's not like was some obscure comment buried in a forum somewhere. You could have done it yourself in the time it took you to post your doubt.

    I already had. I'd googled it about 5 mins after posting asking you for your source. I just asked for your source because I wanted to see if there was any extra information I missed.

    It is to be expected that they started with the first episode again on the TV. Can't wait for the second and thank you for the confirmation of the second season regardless what some want to argue about it.

    So Episode 2 was pretty great. Looks like things are going to get even crazier from here. My mouth just dropped open when Slater pushed him off the pier. Especially after saying "Don't you think you deserved it?" about his Dad doing basically the same thing.

    I didn't like this episode as much as the pilot honestly. Things just didn't make any sense to me. For example, for a while Slater and his team where ignoring him for a while then all of the sudden that chick shows up at his apartment. I thought that was his "gf"/drugdealer for a bit until she took him to the pier. Where'd she come from and why? Also at the end, who was the Chinese guy that hacked into the guys webcam, where'd he come from? I assume maybe he was that foreign hacking group that Slater mentioned was helping them but yeah, there were just so many confusing moments to me that I wasn't a fan. The first episode on the other hand was more straight forward, you knew what was going on and why. I'll continue to watch but that's my two cents.
