Still Quite Good

Watched the seventh episode of The Peripheral last night, and both Bobbi and I are still very impressed. The pacing is good, and they pack an awful lot of plot into each hour long ep.

While there are some differences in the specifics between the series and the book, they're definitely telling the same tale with largely the same cast of characters. The casting is a delight. Especially Lev Zubov and Inspector Lowbeer, who are almost exactly as my headcanon envisioned them from the novel.

Best of all, the show is going out of its way to get a lot of the cool little details from the book onto the screen, with great effect.
