did you ever find out why the roads are glossy and transparent in the future?

Isn't a lot of that just AR sort of stuff?

one month passes...

So I'm reading the book. About 10% of the plot has been translated to the TV show but so much is different - does the show cover any later books in this series?

If I was watching correctly they barely explained neoprims and koids not at all.

About 95% of the way through the book they finally explain what e.g. 'Homes' means that they have been using throughout - obv you can guess but it's kind of lol he then bothers to set it out.

There's only been one more (Agency) in the series, it's not touched at all in the show (and wouldn't make much sense as season 2 with the way they handled things).

If nothing else, this show is kind of great for its costuming -- future fashion that actually looks like fashion.

Glad they renewed. Enjoyed season 1 and plenty more to explore.

six months pass...

In retrospect, perhaps it's for the best.
