Having not seen this series when it originally came out (wow! where have I been!), I found myself totally enjoying it recently. Surprises abound in this very progressive (???) town. The character portrayals are well done, making this series, in my opinion, an enjoyable blend of humans coexisting with advancing technology. While some of the "experiments" seemed far-fetched, some have actually presented some curious thinking about the possibilities of the future, and by not forgetting the human element, we are brought back to present moment reality with human understanding. I especially enjoyed this balance and found this series to be very enjoyable, and look forward to watching the 2 remaining seasons.
