“Virtuality”
Today I review the Virtuality pilor over at Tor.com. I liked it. It’s not the best thing that ever happened to TV, but it was certainly good enough for a one-season series. (Can we just talk about how American TV could really benefit from a British model of limited-run series? Good.…
Doomed Summer Pilots: Virtuality
