Did anyone catch the premiere of that Futuristic Lawyer show last night on CBS?
Law & Order, eat your heart out. Holographic judges, octagonal-shaped windows, and genetically-enhanced female lawyers that put up with sexual harrassment in the workplace. Of course, in the future, all sex is probably done in a clinic somewhere with machines.
It's amazing how much the world can (and will) change. In the year 2030, I can still look 25 like the Backstreet Boys do (except the one who held out and grew old to look like Matlock). But, it doesn't matter how old you look if you don't take care of the body you were given.
Next week, they tackle the issue of athletes with bionic implants. Hopefully, these athletes use their super powers in police stand-offs, because this show could use a little more action. Just so long as it still deals with the issues we will face heading into the future, in the year 2030.
This show deserves praise for bringing up complex social issues that we will have to deal with in the future. It's best that we have shows like this to break the ice. People are afraid to talk about these issues, and they shouldn't be.
I mean, dammit, if you make a clone of yourself, and you raise it as your own son, then it should legally be considered YOUR son. Your parents are not the parents of your son, even if your son is a clone of you!
I didn't watch it, but I saw the promo for next week's ep, and they're making it melodramatic. Plus, it looks like bio-enhanced athletes are the good guys in the episode. There's too much good TV out there for me to waste time on this show.
I read somewhere that Stephen Bochco was coming up with a police drama set in the future. Here's the link via IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0341174/ The pessimist in me thinks that somebody said "Hey, that's a good idea, let's get rid of the cops and add in lawyers, and lets rush it out so that we seem like the innovators". In fact, when I saw the previews for the futuristic lawyer show, I thought it was the Bochco show.
Gravity is a contributing factor in nearly 73 percent of all accidents involving falling objects.
I'd probably pay good money for Dennis Haskins to call the future Mrs. SOK when we're having problems, with his classic hey hey hey, what is going on here?" line from Saved By The Bell. Classic stuff indeed!
