    It has been mentioned already, but I *really* enjoyed SciFi's The Lost Room. It was really good... SciFi's (before they were SyFy) last good mini-series.

    Yes, I really liked it too. It was meant as a backdoor pilot, if I recall, but nothing was ever made of it (except arguably Warehouse 13, maybe?).

    May have missed if this has already been mentioned but Netflix has Sleeper Cell which is a great double mini series about a terrorist plot.

    You're officially the first person I ever met who already knew the book. I would like to subscribe to your newsletter.

    No such thing exists beyond my occasional FB posts. I still recall the Mauritius trip and (paraphrased) "Oh THERE'S x amoount of them...THESE are the last 2...and they don't like each other".

    Something like that.

    He didn't say who signed it. I'll sign yours, if you want.

    I had thought there were only three episodes:

    1. The one about horoscopes and the Pentagon
    2. Max the rogue AI
    3. The stalker/cleaner/prior clients dying

    Looking into it further, it looks like I missed the pilot episode, which is numbered 00. Have to go back, I guess. I enjoyed the series. Is it done or will there be a series 2?

    Also: note that this series was done by Howard Overman, the guy behind Misfits.
