They filmed me.
Through my computer camera.
What, like, filmed you?
Yeah, like, you know, doing it.
No. Like, you... you know.
Jerking off. Jerking off to porn or something? Well, everyone does that. The fucking pope probably does that.

Makes me long for more, and sadder that more are not like this.
This is NOT anti-utopian, it is an actual mirror of a utopian idea gone terribly wrong.
I've only watched 3 episodes so far and each one has made me think, made me go back and look again, made me ask myself why this had never occurred to me before.
I would call this sci-fi in the richest sense of the genre.... it is not about science, but how science affects human beings. The one thing that never seems to change is us. Technology evolves, mutates, advances and declines, but human beings, our feelings, our courage, fears, and desires remain within us.
I love this show. I hope you will love it too. And I hope you will think.
