    Based on the novel of the same name by Philip K. Dick, this is a pilot episode on Amazon. The biggest name I recognize is Ridley Scott as executive producer. Becasue it's called a "pilot," I assume that picking it up as a series is a possibility.

    Ridley Scott was also the guy behind the movie Blade Runner, which was also a Dick book (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep).

    Amazon picked it up as a series.

    I enjoyed the first two seasons despite what was a slow start for me. I enjoyed "Goliath" even more. Trouble is with these series originals there is just way too much time between seasons and in some cases, one is left hanging on whether or not there is going to be another season.

    In some cases I've gone back and watched the final episode of the previous season just to remind myself. :)

    Vikings on THC is another series that is "too long" between seasons.

    However, I will watch when it returns early next year...

    Edit: just saw that Vikings returns 11/29. The wait is almost over!

    I just read that Amazon will be shooting a second season of "Goliath." Of several outstanding other series such as "The Man in the High Castle", I enjoyed Goliath the most. The first couple of episodes in season one start slow but then the story takes off and builds continuously to the end.

    The first season ends with a trial and the closing arguments by both sides to the jury though dramatically shorter than they would be in real life are nevertheless gems. I tried to find them on YouTube but no joy. As stand-alone comments, they are masterful and leave the viewer completely unsure what the jury's verdict will be.

    A bonus for me is the the filming location almost entirely in Santa Monica and Venice are specifically in areas that I see and move within three or four times a week. It literally feels like I'm watching an entire series taking place in my neighborhood.

    Along the lines of "must see Internet TV" if you haven't watched Fortitude on Amazon Prime, you are sorely missing out on one of the best murder/mysteries to come along in a while, along the same plot-lines as Fortitude was an Icelandic production dubbed in English subtitles called Trapped, staring the big guy who was the helicopter pilot in Walter Mitty along with True Detective and other stuff, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson.

    I am a big fan of mysteries, especially British ones. Fortitude is now on my Netflix queue. Thanks for the tip. Trapped isn't on Netflix yet. I'll watch for it. Another good one with a sheriff as a lead is Longmire. I'm in the 5th and latest available season now. It's set in Wyoming.

    Fortitude certainly gets my thumbs up. I really like both seasons and look forward to the third.
