Who Are the Bad Guys?
19 January 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I think there are a couple failings here. One has to do with the history preceding this episode. How did all this come to be? Give us some sort of milieu to work within. Once we have telepathy, there are factors that need to be addressed. How does one put in filters in a mind that is not a machine? Do they occur naturally? Also, when we reach a stage where there is utter bad on both sides, who are we sympathetic toward? This seemed endless at times and I have to admit I never understood the point. If it was simply that telepathy takes away our humanness, that would have worked. But I'm not even sure that's it.
