Exceptional show, a must-watch, but I'm giving it only 3 stars. Please let me explain... the story is carefully crafted with the exception of the character called Maeve. Her journey into consciousness and self awareness was ridiculous! A deal-breaker for me.
In a sense, the show has two extremes in season 1: excellent writing in most episodes, and very lazy writing for Maeve's storyline.
I still think it is fantastic television, and even more relevant with the current (2019) interest in artificial intelligence and cognitive computing.
There are other issues, for example, the pace. Sometimes it slows down and starts to drag. They had to trim some of those scenes a little bit more in the editing room. But there is so much to love, that you should watch it.
