WARNING: if you have a life, you might not “get” this post.
Sometimes, the creativity of the Internet astonishes me.
No, really. I know I’m a snarky and sarcastic person given to damnation-by-faint-praise, but on occasion, even I am honestly impressed. While much of what goes on in the Network’s twisty little forking passages doesn’t contribute to saving the world, we do have to assure ourselves our world is worth saving, don’t we?
There. Wasn’t I right? You just can’t appreciate that sort of thing if you have a social life.
Now, if only somebody could remix the last episode of Ergo Proxy (2006) so that it made some bloody sense. I swear: given how cool that show looks, the depth of the ideas it seems to be addressing during its run, and the total surreal symbolic weirdness of its conclusion, it’s The Prisoner (1967) with robots and a Radiohead theme song.
