Anyone watching this show?

Very trippy and weird. I google Jejune Institute and apparently there was a alternate game/cult and it seems like this show is based on that.

I'm halfway through the first episode and Jason Segal is perfect for

I've got it queued up on the DVR and will probably be checking it out in this weekend. The ads on AMC have sparked my interest.

Saw the first episode and I like the visual approach and weirdness, but so far not enough story to hold interest. I'll give it a few more episodes.

Saw the first episode, but saw it too late to realize the second episode was the next day. Tried to get that On Demand, but for some reason got the first episode again. Will try again.

The first episode was intriguing.

Yes, it is based on a documentary on the alternate reality game which was in San Francisco, while this is set in Philly.

Watched the "intro" by Richard E. Grant at the beginning, immediately thought "OK, this is definitely my kind of show," and then exited from the episode. I'm letting all of the episodes record on the DVR, and I'll binge them then.
