The show was long gone before I ever heard of it, but thanks to the "world wide web" I have been able to see a few episodes. The people who truly enjoyed and understood this show probably voted for John Kerry... the ones who ignored it or actively disliked it are playing in the Bushes... (sorry, couldn't resist!)
I think of myself as a Transhuman - that is, I embrace the future and all that science can offer while trying to be aware of the accompanying risks.
Consider - for example a real life issue - Monsanto's "Round Up" It is a pesticide and herbicide. If you grow Monsanto gene-engineered corn and soy you can use Round Up to kill all the weeds. The plants have a gene that makes them impervious to the chemical. Unfortunately the "brains" behind "Round-Up) did not think it thru...
Round-up also penetrated the ground and killed all the worms and stuff that lived under the ground, the bugs that keep a farm land viable. After a couple of years in one Mexican area, entire farms were turned to desert.
Monsanto screwed up royally.. but this story was practically buried in the back pages of major newspapers. Meanwhile, people in America wonder why Europe does not want anything to do with our "Frankenfoods"... perhaps if they were better informed, and included shows like Century City in their TV routines, we would all be better off.
