This show did a great job of creating a future pop culture, which is featured among the teenage Max and her friends. The future society is also fascinating, with its mix of poverty and twentieth-centuries ruins in downtown Seattle, alongside the future technology and priveleges that the few remaining wealthy people possess. The decreased resources and power of the US government allows just enough space for both extra-legal agencies (such as the one that created Max) to exist as well as providing space for "freaks" like Max and her siblings to be able to make it through society without detection.
I watch a lot of science fiction and fantasy. Once I watch a show, it often sticks in my mind for days, so I thought I'd write down my thoughts a little more formally as a review. Sometimes I concentrate on themes in the show, sometimes I think more about the background science, sometimes the characters - whatever strikes me. I try to make sure details like names and events are correct, but I may make an occasional error.
All of my reviews have spoilers for the episodes and are, of course, completely my own opinions. I welcome any email with comments.
