    So is this complex and intriguing film worth watching, knowing that the questions that percolate through it will likely never be answered? The answer is yes, if you’re a sci-fi buff and/or a fan of the show’s creators, Ronald D. Moore and Michael Taylor, who are veterans of the acclaimed “Battlestar Galactica.”

    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 »
