Now the army plans to hire Mr. Schroeder again to write Zefra II, another sci-fi book about what Canadian soldiers may face in 2040, said Lt.-Col. Rostek, one of a small team of soldiers who advise the army about what may come to pass three decades from now.
Dear U.S. Government,
Could you do that too? Maybe stop killing non-rich, non-white, non-Christian people and instead put the money into hiring SF writers to crank out some high grade futurism? Because that would be cool.
I could joke that the show would have been better with the sound muted, but only because the dancing to Gaga was the most convincing sequence. (Which is a bad sign since that is the world she left behind.)
I couldn't really hear the song that came on after Gaga, but I adored it and look forward to finding out what it was.
It sure felt like it was stumbling out of the gate but enough questions need answering that I'll hang in a bit to see what happens.
As far as Pretender-Dark-Alias-Angel clones go, it was alright.
As far as S&M Quantum Leap Anti-human trafficking shows about amnesia and repressed memories go, it was rather good.
The bad news is that Buffy and Firefly worked because of long-term connections between the leads as they became a dramatic ensemble. This looks unlikely for Dollhouse considering the plot structure.
