Well, I said it had a slow start in the first episode, but everything picked up this week. Eps one and two together really function as a two part pilot, it just wasn't labeled as such. Now, with the initial conflict resolved, they have determined who they are as a team and how they resolve a crisis. And they are also beginning to determine their place in the universe, and how they relate to the big players.
The second episode was definitely better than the first.
That was a brilliant play, calling in the mining corp's rival to help level the playing field!
Three is just too funny, he cracks me up!
Out of all of them, he has the most "bad" tendencies left over, and he loves it! He just seems to have fun being "bad". (And the actor is clearly having a blast as well.
) He had some great lines, like "Slashy McStabberson", and naming his guns, etc.
And toting a massive
And Six seems to have the most variety of skills: pilot, fighting skills, and apparently medic as well.
Agreed that the climactic fight was very well played. I normally don't watch things for the violence, and fighting is not usually the highlight for me. But this was very well played, and strategically interesting, with a variety of action.

So Five didn't erase everyone's memories but she knows it was someone on the crew and they did it because the mercs are dangerous. I wonder who it was and what caused them to do it. How long have this team been together?
Why did Five crawl through the vents when the Ferrous Corp. rep came on board? It's a large ship and she didn't seem to be anywhere near the docking area. It just felt random.
For me that was an "aha" moment, because my theory is that she stowed away on the ship at the last place they raided. That she hid, and then set the technology to wipe their memories. She has the technical skills to do so, knows about what's behind the door etc. She may have even set up a way to get her memories back, if that is what she is remembering.
So when she climbed through the ventilation shaft, I thought "Oh, that's how she did it!". Maybe it was one of those things where they instinctively do things they have done before, like fly a ship or fight?
And I know she said she is getting someone else's memories, but I think they could be hers. She could be being vague on purpose, until she knows more about who to trust. Or she could mean "someone else" in the same sense as "we are not those people anymore".

I wonder if One and Two had a relationship pre-mind wipe. They certainly seem to be heading in that direction now so is it something new or just a continuation of old habits?
LOL, that makes me wonder if it's like the TNG ep with the same plot (Conundrum?). Without their memories, Riker and Ro forgot how much they hated each other!
One more thing that I think really works in the show's favor, is that the cast has great chemistry with each other. The characters are quirky and diverse enough, that it is fun just watching their personalities bounce off of each other.
