Definitely stick with it. It's a slow burner but it's all about the characters (like the early game of thrones).7 episodes in, quite enjoying it …not entirely sure what’s going on, but I’m sure it will drop in
I watched all 5 series in the last 6 weeks so very much late to the party. I can't believe I'd never watched it as a science fiction geek.
It's going to be interesting how they end it. The series pretty much follow the books (so series 5 is book 5 etc). Yet it's ending after 6 series with 9 books.
