    I love how these new episodes are like grown-up versions of the original. I'm glad they're not just Frankensteined versions of the old show. They're much improved. They're polished. And they're not running out of material. I love the crack on the Matrix. I had never looked at it like that before, but it's totally true. I also love how they showed how awesome virtual reality could be. This show is so smart and heartfelt. I love it.



    Sidenote: some of the dialog and choreography in this episode made me wish these writers and producers would try a live action series. I think it could be a lot like 'The Tick', and could be pretty awesome.moreless
