Lt. Hobbes, a young idealistic Marine who's about to get married, is sent on a top secret mission into "Harsh Realm", a virtual reality world created by the military to run war game scenarios that's identical to his own, to assassinate the renegade soldier Omar Santiago, who has taken control over the game from within and created his own military dictatorship there. In the game, Hobbes meets people like Mike Pinocchio, a tough cynical rogue soldier previously sent on the same mission, Mike's no-nonsense mute female comrade, as well as virtual simulations of the people from the real world including the one based on his real life fiancee. However, he also learns that he is actually trapped in the game along with numerous other soldiers previously sent to kill Santiago. Meanwhile, Hobbes real life fiancee investigates his disappearance with the help of a mysterious female ally with an agenda of her own.Written by
I really love the X-Files and it is a shame that this is the last season for it (1999), but if Carter was trying to transition his fanbase to another show (Millenium ended last season), this was a really bad attempt. Yes, it's similar to The Matrix. And I have heard about a previous comic book. But there really wasn't any "substance" - in the long run he had to defeat the Bad Guy. Big deal. Why should I watch every week? To see the same Goo effect of a "bug" in the VR world? X-Files always leaves another question - "What will happen next?" or "But what about ....?"
Read in the newspaper that FOX picked up on this too, and after three aired episodes - goodbye!
