I watched Part 1 on TV and Part 2 at the Disney website. Both episodes are fantastic! This whole series is going to be awesome!
It is a lot to digest so I'm sure there will be much more discussion as we all get a chance to watch and re-watch these episodes. The rez-up sound of the Encom 786 gave me chills when I heard it. There are several very cool homages to the original TRON movie sprinkled throughout the episodes.
The animation combined with the CG is really fantastic, but when you add in the incredible sound design, it transforms this show from extraordinary into something truly magnificent! I had the surround sound cranked up and it was a feast for the ears as well as the eyes!
I like the fact that most of the programs have some type of distortion to their voices. I think I even detected some distortion in Beck and Cutler's voices as well, slight though it may be.
The nightclub scene was pretty cool. The nod to Daft Punk with what looked like two female DJ's was awesome as well! I like the way they portrayed Mara's dancing. Perl seems to be an interesting character. She seems like that tough upbringing, grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, hangs out with the wrong crowd, type of girl. I think she's gonna get mixed up with Paige and become her little protege or spy. But maybe in the end, she'll see the error of her ways and turn away from "the dark side".
I'm so looking forward to the rest of this series! We're back on the Grid, Programs! The Uprising has begun!!
