Just watched the recent episode. One Word BRILLIANT. It is no hyperbole to say this was one of the most boldest, clever, intelligent, progressive episode of TV I have seen in a long time. The usage of Social Media and Democracy was so good. Definately the episode of the season so far. I wasen't so sure about this show in the pilot. But wow this show has come on. It has to be my favorite new show of the year. This has to be picked up for a second season, it just has to be. It is the best Sci Fi show since Chuck. It is so refreshing to see a show in this genre. That is uplifting and optimistic. It is currently kicking any Sci Fi shows ass right now. Heck even the new Star Trek imo.
I loved the touch on how social media has gone wrong. And likes just like currency. And in a Democracy where this society lives in a more "American Idol" Type Utopia. And when Ed wwas like "Oh it is a popular entertainment show from old earth, where they vote on the best singer" Bortus: "Why?" Ed: "It was a Dark Time"
. When John was going on the Talk Show to save his life basically. And his Lawyer is like "Go out their show some positivity". And the way the host was like and now on the show the guy who descicrated the statue John!! The way he ran in high fiving the crowd
. And real climax with the positive/negative battle their. The Collobaration Share thing was really clever.
I also love how they are bringing serious issues into the show. I loved this conversation between Lysella and Bortus about Democracy.
Then when Issac was like "I beleive you are confusing opinion with knowledge" Brilliant. IT is interesting topic to delve into. About Democracy. Who's correct? I Think Bortus was. But I also agreeded with Lysella.
The end with "You can make your world better". IS the Star Trek I grew up with. Leaving you off with an Uplifting and Optimistic vibe. Great Episode.
