Another Dystopia--Another Show
9 October 2014 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Yet another episode where the government in their infinite wisdom has installed big computer chips in people. The very existence of these people depends on the accuracy of these things. The episode begins with a man, who is carrying the chip of a subversive, is in a huge facility, ready to blow it up an unleash havoc. Cleverly, the episode takes us back in time, first an hour, then a day, then several days, to how he and young woman got to this point. Once a government supporter, locking heads with what he calls Ludites and naysayers, he now finds himself on the opposite side. The issue is the dehumanization of the race through these supposedly benevolent power mongers. The underground is violent and suspicious and carries on a campaign based on a character named Zig-Zag (not his real name, of course). The unfolding of this ultimate event is what this is all about. A pretty decent offering.
