And too many people from the pilot episode in all 10 episodes per IMDB. No mention of any 100 AV cast members.
It felt like the pilot covered nearly half of the material of the present day from book 1. I still enjoy the book, particularly the audiobook (Scott Brick). It can be tediously slow at times but its still solid.
Watching it now, not hating it. They condensed the origin story of the virus into the first 5 minutes, which wasn't a bad call. And I'm surprisingly not hating Mark Paul. Turns out Zack turned into a decent actor. Who knew?
