Best episode so far
8 November 2015 | by boon23See all my reviews

Indians on TV was a wonderful episode about contact with your grandparents or old people in general. The light-hearted episode came with a lot of tragicomic humor addressing so many issues about contact, about loneliness, about the fascination of the experience of people a younger generation can learn so much from, if only they would listen or take the time. The robot seal PARO finally nailed it. So sad that it's funny, so funny that it's sad. There were no bad guys and no one to blame, no one particularly without care - and that's a masterful achievement in telling a story. It had superb acting and directing, great music. If you haven't seen this episode or feel insecure about giving this nice show a try: this one is worth it.
