Good god. They made a show just for me. That's awfully sweet of them.
How has this been doing, if anyone knows? I keep running into suggestions that this kind of bottomless sarcasm and cynicism isn't welcome in today's world, you gen X weirdo. All that sneering at over produced lifestyle imagery and marketing is out of fashion. Today it's genuine, not like in your day. Our youth are positive, old man, and if you want gainful employment in this world you'll get with the program.
*ahem* anyway--- this show isn't shy about all the things I've been wondering if you can do anymore. It loves to reference reality directly. And even the indirect stuff hews very close, like Evil corp's logo being Enron's logo. It's not like Enron's logo, it is Enron's logo. And Evil corp! That's hilarious. Not to mention cute, as you must ask, if the view point is so subjective that you hear it the way he hears it you do have to wonder what else isn't exactly accurate.
But enough stating the obvious. I like how it sets a pretty high bar for the tech stuff, while still being fairly realistic. Even pretty hip productions that're quite recent, when they talk about computers and science, feel they have to either layer on the jargon to Dr Who levels so people just tune it out and get the general gist, or stop and go over it slowly like teaching grandma the ipad. This is like "It's 2015. Keep up."
Nicely done so far.
