Excellent subject matter
21 August 2015 | by vulcanrider-00892See all my reviews

One of the best of the early episodes. Yes, it had some goofs, but what TV show doesn't. At least it had real acting, writing, and directing, unlike today's 99% CGI movies, which I don't even watch.

The reason I gave it a 10 despite a few miscues is because of the subject matter. It hit pretty close to home. First of all, I was in Oahu about 2 1/2 years ago. They have turned the place into a giant recreational park. Everything there costs a fortune, and most native Hawaiians can't afford to live there. The truth is, I would not WANT to live there if I could afford to. That was my first trip to Hawaii, so I can only imagine what it was like before the developers took over.

I am living in a similar situation. First of all, I live in the state of AZ, some 30 miles southeast of Phoenix. When I was a kid it was all desert and farmland. Now it is all cookie cutter stucco houses, shopping malls, and freeways. So I can understand how the character played by Simon Oakland would have felt. I feel the same way. My homeland (I'm a native, lived here for 56 years) has been totally destroyed. There is nothing left of what it used to be.

On top of that, we have no southern border to speak of, and out state is being flooded with illegal immigrants from Mexico and South America. Half the people where I live don't speak English, and many are here illegally.
