full disclosure:big fan of sci-fi
17 June 2018 | by csample2008See all my reviews

If you take the root of the word fan & i want you to, then maybe you can follow where i i'm coming/going from/to with my review. today, especially when considering the things covered in the 1st few episodes you need to go deep with your grok of the genre. it's metaphor demonstrating the imaginings of universes where humanity is inserted & has to deal with his environment, foreign though it may look/feel there's a human dropped in there who only deal wit they use the situation with the tools his/her humanity has given them. if you are one of those that's wondered things like "why am i here?" or, "what is the/my purpose in life?" then you may have taken it to a more personal/deeper level. i never asked the questions & they used to confuse me but upon this kind of deep meditation/consideration i have come to a place of comfort/understanding re: sci-fi, which is & has become sci-actual. so, i took in all of the stuff presented up to ep. 6 so far. obviously i'm enjoying it. i was pondering symbology & how it is so useful if you can decode it, but also annoying because, what?, i have to learn another communication form? but things today of sci-actual is unearthing long lost worlds and hidden secrets where we need to use or comms skills to decode the symbology of ultimately,us. great venue to see us and finally, to spare us this mr. Cameron names thing easily understandably. re: unobtainium, and a terminator. clear as water, eh?
