I have also watched 7 episodes of UA since I started on Saturday. Yes, I love Klaus!
#5 is an amusing character too.
The show itself has a lot of potential, even if it kind of feels like a mashup of a bunch of different series and films, like X-Men, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Diego quite reminds me of first season Grant), Future Man, A Series of Unfortunate Events, a little bit of Altered Carbon, and even the British Utopia (I only watched the first season in 2013 but it was effen amazing)... plus many more. So it's not exactly "original" but so far it seems to be working fairly well with the material it has, even if it feels a little too heavily "typically American" at times (and yes, I know it was primarily filmed in Toronto, Canada). If it were a British show it might have come across less clichÚ at times, possibly.
Hm, that reminds me, Orphan Black was also filmed around Toronto. (A BBC America production.)
The guy from Mindhunter playing Hazel seems to be miscast. In addition, he is using the exact same tone and cadence he used in Mindhunter and that is really jarring.

I wonder if he still prefers egg salad over that tuna sandwich he had to eat?
I watched the first 7 episodes of UA and it's not perfect. Then again Klaus and #5 sure make it feel like it is.

I'm guessing we're the same age
