Episode 297: That Doesn’t Look Like Anything to Me

May 19, 2019

So, here's a pitch: some people go into a virtual world based on the Old West to experience a narrative-driven experience that gives them a good time roleplaying a harmless power fantasy to escape from their stress-filled lives, but whoops the computer goes crazy and the robots in the simulation start trying to kill them for real. We'll call it..."A Fistful of Datas," and we'll make it an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Why, what did you think I was talking about? (Hardy har, I made a funny. We're also talking about "Rascals" and "The Quality of Life," plus another second season episode of The Wire.)
