My main problems so far are the tone they went for, the issues I think the graphic novel had that I think they'd fix and especially Yorick.
It is not a bad TV show but by taking itself too seriously, it robs Yorick from being the witty, hopeless romantic , smart college drop out kid from the novel to an entitled , actually dumb, whiny loser that is hard to root for ( The fact that he thought Amp was swimming in that subway scene pissed me the hell off) but luckily the other characters are very well done which is probably why Yorick seems so...Weak in comparison. 355 exceeded my expectations as well as Pres Brown and they're teh reason I will continue watching.

Maybe his personality translates poorly on screen but the way I remember in the graphic novel he has a Peter Parker typa personality ( Which helps him navigate the horrors of his situation) but in this, dude is irritating to watch. His immaturity shouldn't be something that makes him unbearable. It's probably a me thing as I think there is too many shows that mishandle this " Hero's Journey" by making their protagonists hard to root for.

Mostly like how this is unfolding, and I like getting insight on Hero's journey that we didn't get in the comics. I do have the same complaint about Yorick being dumb (rather than just naive) but he seems to be smartening up little by little.

Sucks that it's cancelled. I never read the comic (only heard of it) and thought the series so far was interesting enough, even if the pace was slow and I felt like few characters were worth rooting for.
