In case you don’t already know what this show is, it’s basically a modern Twilight Zone with each episode telling a completely different story. You can absolutely make the comparison because the issues brought up in the older show (racism, nuclear war, fascism) have been updated to our more modern fears (reality TV, technology overtaking our humanity, cyber-terrorism).

I’m not going to go episode by episode but overall, I’m hooked on this and I think this is a very well written and acted modern counterpart to something like Twilight Zone. It’s topical without being too preachy and taps into some real unease most of the public has these days. All I hear from my friends is “D00d, just WAIT for season two!” so, that will be up next. I’m looking forward to it! I’ma big fan of smartly written entertainment.
