i always start these programs assuming they will be unwatchable, and piss me off.  this one is interesting.  there are members of this cast that i really like + it brings up some thought provoking ideas.  i bet most of us who have spent any time in the military have considered the circumstances under which we might refuse an order.  granted, this is extreme, but......

anyway, it will be interesting to see how this plays out and it has some folks in it that i really like. 
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

It was an on the edge of your chair show. Just not sure they will be able to maintain the intensity. I hope they will be able to pull it off.
