|S4: Ep.27 - Ram and the Technos are
fast restoring the technical infrastructure that was lost after the
Virus. First came electricity, now comes CityNet, the equivalent of
cable TV or internet webcasts. Its very first broadcast was a VR contest
set in a computer generated Romanesque amphitheater. The two Gladiators
fighting to the death were Lex and some barbarian. Lex won. Then into
the ring came Lex's 2nd opponent, Java. With a little CG trickery,
she won. Ram, thinking himself to be "Roman Emperor", settled
the matter between a 50-50 vote, and decided he should live.
now the goof. Remember that everything that appears on the CityNet-connected
screens is supposed to be computer generated. Hence Lex is simply
wearing an interface on his head connected to a computer. The entire
amphitheater scene, complete with spectators all dressed in togas,
are meant to recreate Roman history.
So what, I ask myself, is that TV or radio antenna doing up there
near top left corner?
