    Man, I want this show to be better. It throws its ideas about how technology will change life in the future around at a rate that Star Trek would probably consider wasteful, right down to the model jury. It's got a good cast and good guest stars.

    And I can't remember any of the characters' names. There's the idealistic guy, the obnoxious guy, the ex-pol, the genetically engineered woman, and the two respected character actors who don't have a single thing to do. The show only had about seven episodes made, and from the two we've seen so far, it's not making a big impression. I was hoping this was just a case of pilot-itis, but this episode was even flatter than the first.

    It's frustrating; I liked the concepts of this episode but it fell short. The Darryl Sbara story, especially, didn't seem nearly as creepy as it could have.

    If this is the future, I want some of that stuff the kid wanted to stay in the present.

    Hopefully nobody got too attached to this show as it has been cancelled after four episodes.

    I actually thought it was a good show.

    Looks like I won't be seeing the rest of the episodes. I wonder if they'll try to put it on DVD.

    Doubt it - I don't think Universal has done many of these short-run series.

    It's almost guaranteed to show up on Sci-Fi, though - in fact, I think it was originally supposed to run on Sci-Fi 10 days after its CBS run.
