I'm not familiar with the short story the pilot episode (The Hood Maker) is based upon but it convinced me, or the writer did a solid job adapting it. It builds a world that reminded me of the Terry Gilliam Brazil with the dirt, chaos and stymied technology. Yet, as it's learned in the end, it's not not our world. This was surely added by the writer and it isn't a twist really, but it functions nicely. Comparing it to similar movies, we mustn't forget that this has only 45 or so minutes to depict a world and resolve a story. It builds a fine atmosphere and keeps it steady throughout.
