Oh, I can't believe no one else loves this show. I LOVE this show. It's absolutely brilliant and imaginative.
The bee theme really builds after the pilot. There was even an episode this season (it aired on October 1st) called "Bzzz" that was all about bees and a beekeeping company, etc. (My avatar is from a screencap from that episode)
I mean, it IS a fantasy, so I'm sure the bee stuff isn't completely accurate, but it's still a really good show.
I'd encourage everyone in the US to give it a try - it comes on tonight! ABC, 8pm EST, 7pm central.
