That’s some commitment to the retro-futurist world; it immediately reminded me of Fallout and its pre-apocalypse vision of an alternative 1950s America. Seems to be playing it much straighter than that particular story. I never thought AppleTV would be the service that has been consistently serving the most… Read more
The future is the same timeline so the same peripheral.
The Flynne jumping into it is now from the new stub that the first Flynne created. NewFlynne has all the same experiences and knowledge that firstFlynne had up until the point of the split.
FirstFlynne is (presumably) dead in her stub which means the data that… Read more
By splitting off another stub she created a new reality where she has all the knowledge and information she had at the point she split it off but, from the outside to the RI and other players in this future, it is just one simulation among who knows how many.

The show did too much weird with both the world and the plot for most people. It’s like Weird Alice in Weird Wonderland. You need a baseline. Alice needs to… Read more
Here’s what happened in the finale: Flynne created a new stub from her own stub. She therefore had the same life we saw up until the point of divergence. She also had the data in her head. At this point, there aren’t other timelines she can do anything about as they are only created when the future contacts the… Read more
I didn’t mind the finale although it definitely feels like they would have been better served with ten episodes as opposed to eight. I wish it had stuck the landing a little better but I think it still ranks high in my ranking of top genre shows for the season (Andor takes first place, this and Interview with the… Read more
Rogue needs to be highlighted a bit more, as the premise is too good- a group of tourists are stranded on an island in the middle of a large river, with a giant crocodile stalking them, all while the water level slowly rises. Also, Sam Worthington actually has a dynamic character for once. Read more
