High-budget science fiction series derived mostly from original stories by top SF authors. The unrelated stories (two by John Varley) are re-set in a future Utopia, Betaville, which is being undermined by out-of-control technologies.
There is a reason that only about 9 of the 14 episodes actually aired before this show was canceled! It's too bad, because this could have been a great idea to base a show on. The writing was mediocre at best. Some of the characters were a little too ignorant to be computer geeks. For example, the character of Sosh, I can't believe that Kim Murphy didn't stop at times to ask, "Who wrote this stupid drivel?
If you've got a couple hours to kill, check out a couple episodes. There are worse shows, that's for sure. It's seems as if someone will come up with the premise for a good show, but the scriptwriters, or the directors haven't got a clue. I know that the actors and actresses can only go by the script, but a lot of the time they can't even manage to do that.
