I got the feeling that this was a comic book 1970's (Flight of the Concords guy wanting to know if the 60's free love is still going on)... so there is some advanced tech in the setting.
9 outta 10 Masters are Master.

solid finale with a pretty crazy ending. We got a little more info on when the show takes place too since they mention Oliver has been missing for 20 years so at the earliest it would be in the 80s.

if the first few episode is Oliver and Lenny just hanging out, I am there

Oddly enough Oliver seem kind of ok with having a parasite in him. At first I thought he was just taken over

Oliver was obviously afraid of The Shadow King. He made that pretty clear when he first met David. I think Oliver agreed to the same terms The Shadow King was trying to give David to prevent TSK from killing him and to protect his friends.

I assume that's the weapon Div 3 was going to send that the burned man was asking them to hold off on.

Glad he didn't take Girl Carry...I still don't fully understand their origin story btw.

I just started watching this show. I'm liking it. Perfect timing as Agents of SHIELD is ending.

The Bolero scene was pretty dope. And Walter getting crushed... Pretty wild.

Ok, can anyone give me a better understanding of the guy and girl in the same body? I saw their origin story and still felt a little unsure about it.

Native American couple gets pregnant and has a baby. Baby turns out to be white, so husband leaves the wife since he assumed she cheated. Kid grows up with an imaginary friend, who turns out to be real and living inside his body. The friend is Native and probably the person who would have been born to the couple if there hadn't been any mutation.

Just finished it.

This show has some amazing, beautifully filmed sequences. But it's pretty light on story and very decompressed. This would have been covered in half the time on Agents of SHIELD and would have been stronger for it. The lead character is great but the characterization of most of the supporting cast is very light.

They did do a good job of making the Shadow King seem menacing and Aubrey Plaza did a great job.
