The more you kick against the pricks, the more you suffer.




Ultra City, she don't care. She don't care whether you're rich and powerful, poor and desperate, or corrupt and comfortable. Your fortune and future is as precious as it is precarious. AMC brings Steve Conrad's (Patriot, Perpetual Grace LTD) vision of Alt-New York by way of the Uncanny Valley by way of a six-episode stop-motion animation.

I love that the sci-fi premise of all his shows is "what if everyone's internal monologue was external?"

Also, if Mills is the police station baby he's not precluded from also being a Smith.
