Totally impressive program!
5 September 2006 | by (Fulda, Germany) – See all my reviews

I watched this show some years ago on German TV and loved it immediately! This mini-series deals with many scientific and technical issues that one would usually think are the pure product of a scifi author's imagination: robots and cyborgs, aliens, parapsychology, future wars etc. Gillian Anderson has a wonderful performance hosting the show as she guides her audience through all of these topics showing in a very entertaining way what is fact and what is (still) fiction. So you learn, for example, that the technology of bionics is not only the underlying theme of a show such as "The Six Million Dollar Man" but also that there is a true historic background behind the show and that bionics will probably play a bigger role in the future of mankind. The most interesting thing about this show is, however, that Gillian Andersons demonstrates what science has achieved so far (i.e. in 1996) in all of these fields so that in the end you know that it's not all pure fiction.
