I love Dennis Leary, and I loved Gattaca. This probably has a billion hurdles to cross, each one of which could end it, but I hope it gets there.

See, this is another one of those that just makes no sense to me at all. (And I also love Leary and enjoyed Gattaca.)

I guess the fictional world and the whole "fight or fool the unjust system" aspect just doesn't do that much for me. Worked for a two-and-a-half-hour movie, but a series? Have fun; I'll probably pass. :(

I see a drama in a SF setting.

I can't see the movie's premise working as a series, and I'm not too keen on Leary, so I'd have to rate my enthusiasm level as "very low."

Did y'all really like the movie that much? I thought the story was great but the movie didn't sell it to me.

Dude, Uma? What's not to be sold on? :P

I like Jude Law, too. Hawke ... not so much.

She's ugly.

Same. Jude was good.

When you have big fingers like she has, big nostrils are a necessity.

Uma doesn't float my boat either.
