Are you watching Condor?

Condor falls into the thriller-action genre as Joe Turner, a CIA analyst, has his life turned upside down by a computer algorithm. The storyline is incredible relatable and reminds me that in today's world, Big Brother is always watching and Big Brother can always find you. The programme reminds me of The Americans, except instead of watching the action involving the Cold War, you're actually living it since we're all susceptible to the overreaching surveillance laws, hackers, corrupt officials, dirty money, and computer algorithms that can go wrong. Are you watching Condor? What do you think about it so far?

I read that it is based on a movie which is based on a book. That is a long way to go, so I wonder how much of the original content is lost. That said, a series has more chance to do the book justice compared to a movie. I am not thrilled about corrupt officials using computer algorithms to gain more money, but let me know if the plot gets better in the future. What do you like best so far?

Hands down it's got to be Brendan Fraser's performance as Nathan Fowler ("the bad guy"). I'm used to seeing Fraser in the role of the good guy or the goofy, dorky man. I was surprised he was slated to play Nathan Fowler, but he's very good at portraying the menacing and conniving role. It's an amazing transformation.

I haven't seen this series yet so I will give it a try with all the good previews given here. I'm guessing it is similar with Matrix because it was mentioned above that a computer algorithm has affected the life of Joe Turner.

No Meerkat, it is more related to the Jason Bourne franchise. I won't say anything that will spoil the show. I'm glad to see that Brendan is acting again, no pun intended.

That man in The Mummy! I liked his role there, although the third film was not as amusing as the first two. I am tempted to try the first episode; maybe I will do it in my free time. Incredible Iron, spoil me a little about the protagonist's quest. Is it a convincing one so far?

Brendan was not present in the 4th episode. The show focused on Joe's history and tried to explain how he got into the CIA.

I'm curious about this so I will ask it instead of answering it myself. If you don't like to do something and was still forced to do it for the sake of others, will you comply doing it?

For me, it would depend on what it was. I hate waiting in line or eating rhubarb, but yeah, I'd do it to save lives or just improve lives. I think I could endure pain to save others, but if you're asking if I could inflict it, I don't know. This is the trolley problem, isn't it?
