Long After They Are Effective
26 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I suppose this could happen. Bradbury must have seen humans as kind of ineffectual nits who had just decided to sit back and watch TV and ignore the world around them (a common theme in his writing). In this totalitarian society, mini-copters fly around keeping people from leaving their houses, threatening them with a kind of neutralization if they even walk the neighborhood. David Ogden Stiers is a risk taker who gets his friend to check the world outside. Of course, they are going to be seen by the observers and are going to pay a price. What is interesting is what they eventually find out. This is a pretty simplistic story with a pessimistic message. I like Bradbury but at times his insights and opinions weren't all that insightful.
