That after reading and spending a semester discussing "Origins of Totalitarianism" it is very interesting to watch some of the show's arc's take place. (IE Kane, and currently the new commander forgetting her name) Also the religion went super culty very quickly.
Second thought is, and perhaps you or sarge can explain this to me. The AI is in everyone's minds, and I get that and it see's and hears, and can get the memories and ideals from them. But the communication between the AI is something that is bothering me. I cannot grasp how the same bug at point A and point B, can relay from B to A instantaneously
Also Murphy's story is infuriating, he should have been dead in the first season, I cannot fathom how he is still alive while also getting laid by a people that hate his people.
