    As drama, unfortunately, it's often punchless, with a meandering narrative which, it's obvious from the first moments, cannot be contained within a single two-hour show.

    An incredibly compelling made for TV production, Virtuality has a similar vibe to Sunshine and an infinite amount of great directions the An incredibly compelling made for TV production, Virtuality has a similar vibe to Sunshine and an infinite amount of great directions the story could take. Apparently, it won't go anywhere past this 2 hour pilot, which is a crying shame, because this could have been the best thing to happen to TV since Lost. Excellent! Full Review »
