    Does anyone know how long new episodes are available for streaming after they’re put up? A week or more? I’ve cut the cord with Charter for at least a month and will need to use the Starz add-on with Hulu at hotspots.

    It's a STARZ Original Series, so a long time. All of S1 is still available. STARZ even has long ago cancelled series available

    I've seen Available by magic mentioned many times, what's 'magic'?
    (S2E1 also on now streaming on STARZ)

    Wow! I completely forgot about this. I could have watched it at 1Am last night from the Starz app, if I had remembered. I had wanted to watch Season 1 again, but never got around to it. Heck I think I may have even purchased Season 1 on BD.

    I finally remembered about the episodes dropping around midnight. So I watched the second episode before I went to bed early this morning. I thought it was another enjoyable episode.

    Well, the good news is he only ruined the first two episodes. The third one could still suck...

    (In theory, anyway.)

    Sorry for the late bump, but I just got Starz and binged S1 so I join along in S2.

    Maybe I'm confused, but I thought the guy who shot Nadia (Alpha) was from Alpha Housekeeping (Aldrich's second in command?).

    Maybe Alpha allows Chinese slave labor, while Prime doesn't? :)

    In reality it is very believable. The two worlds diverged decades ago. And then the one had a massive pandemic. So resources were put towards medical issues that in the other world were not. That makes a huge difference. Plus the farther away you get from the divergence point, the bigger differences there will be.

    To duplicate an iPhone requires the capability to duplicate the chips and screen. This is not something you can easily figure out by a tear-down of a sample. A sample of Gorilla glass wouldn't tell you the manufacturing process that makes it.

    It's not about the specific components. Obviously they'd have to develop the technology to build those. But the idea that one side has touchscreen devices and the other side still uses flip phones makes no sense. Once the spies from Prime saw how ubiquitous and superior the touchscreen devices were on the Alpha side, they'd take a samples back (or even just a description) and it wouldn't be long before the engineers on the Prime side would start down that path.

    I was only half-joking. Maybe Asia Prime is a much different place than Asia Alpha (hey, I have that album). Lambert commented on how much cleaner their oceans were.
    As convoluted as this show can be, we've only seen Berlin and a little of the German countryside.

    Without re-igniting the quantum physics debate, is it possible that the two worlds get more and more different the further you are from the passage?

    And why is the greatest secret in the world so poorly defended that one gunman can take out all the guards?

    Leaving aside the question of how one would build an iPhone without the ability to manufacture its component parts, I don't think the spies from Prime are focusing on consumer electronics. The information exchanges we saw in earlier episodes were concerned with larger issues.
