The Glass Teat, or 'Television'

1/3 way through. So stupid. But delicious. Still laughing at some of the jokes. Despite them being extremely silly. Totally on form.

Black Summer. The tale of what happens when a scifi Macguffin affects the sun, and tanning starts to turn black and brown people white. A searing indictment of racism and the exposure of prejudices, where tempers are frayed by record temperatures and racial infighting. Presented in a documentary style, families and societies are torn apart, Eye-opening, shocking, and it truly makes you think.

Not really. Made that up. It’s got zombies in it and it’s good.

Nightflyers. A mission to contact alien life launches, on what is possibly the most dangerous spaceship in existence. Haunted by ghosts, rogue robots, and a psychopathic telepath, by the second episode it’s unintentionally funny how many people are dying in such a short space of time. I’m invested now purely to see how big and flimsy the lies to cover up the deaths get.

Isn’t it a George R.R. Martin story? If so, the deaths shouldn’t be all that surprising.


#425

It’s not the deaths, it’s the number and manner of them and the resultant excuses. “Ah yes, that entire security team who all died in a freak glazing accident.”

Kingdom. Competing plots for the throne of a dying king turns into something more when a sudden outbreak of illness (it’s zombies) etc. Korean setting is a winner.
