Not quite.
14 January 2018 | by jcain1635See all my reviews

There is a lot that this episode had in it's favor. The set design, acting, soundtrack, and camera work is well above average. Unfortunately, the story never really goes anywhere. While engaging while being watch, the story seems to tactfully avoid any sense of climax and ending. It just kind of stops. The story is adapted from the short story "Sales Pitch", which I found to be a great little story. The problem is: it is severely lacking in material substantial enough to adapt into a one hour television program. So the story has been altered to almost unrecognizable proportions. I normally wouldn't have a problem with this, but the story was strong in every way this interpretation was not. The themes were clear, it had a healthy dose of comedy at the ineptitude of the technology depicted, and the characters were well defined. This story evades any point or theme. (Even though the ideas of manufactured souls is extremely enticing, its used sparingly and is almost irrelevant to the story.) If you love Phillip K. Dick or Science Fiction, give it a try. Just know it's not the best of either. If there are any episodes weaker than this, I will likely be left frustrated with this season.
