Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on November 27, 2016

incorporatedIncorporated is an upcoming Syfy show that I went to set to record and discovered it was available on demand in advance. The advertising harps on the fact that Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are executive producers, and it becomes immediately apparent that it’s because of the hippie liberal themes. In the future, global warming devastated the US, the government more or less collapsed, and everything is now run by evil corporations. If you don’t live the sweet life working for one of the corps inside their borders (“Green Zone”), you live in a post-apocalyptic hellscape (“Red Zone”).

It’s interesting enough, though I suspect if you aren’t concerned about the environment or corporate greed, you’re likely to find the hippie stuff irritating. The money shot from the pilot is the guy in his self-driving car on his way from his idyllic suburban home to work, when they zoom out to reveal the lush treeline along the road is a projection, and everything outside his neighborhood/his office towers/the road to work looks like something out of Fallout. That’s basically the setup.

It stars some guy I don’t know as the main guy, along with Dennis Haysbert, Julia Ormond, the always lovely Allison Miller, Dewey Crowe from Justified, some really hot girl in a small part that I hope gets bigger, and a bunch of Canadian That Guys.
