I really enjoyed the series, especially the start of how the world was slowly discovered.  The first look at the abominations beyond the fence was a surprising change.  I never did understand why they didn’t just keep jumping through time until they came to a better time to set up the town instead of just accepting whatever they got on the first try.  They could easily come out every couple thousand years and see if it was better to try and set up then.  I guess that could be given up to the megalomania of the head guy, but it shouldn’t have been an issue at the very start of the wakeup process.
