Canceled Too Soon #103 - VR.5 (2015)

Virtual reality: the cause of, and solution to, all of the 1990s' problems. In the short-lived Fox television series VR.5, Lori Singer ("Footloose"), Anthony Stewart Head ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer") and Michael Easton ("Total Recall 2070") use this amazing technology to enter the subconscious mind of criminals and solve mysteries. Over a dial-up landline. Ain't computers amazing?

"VR.5" is one of the many post-"The X-Files" sci-fi shows that tried to tap into contemporary anxieties, but this one couldn't find an audience, and lasted only 13 episodes. 

But was it... Canceled Too Soon? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold explore this cult series in the latest episode of the podcast.

  1. That you could see a dinosaur very close, or draw in cutting edge fight bots or even simply play tennis with Martina in your lounge room, through VR gaming, is proof that we are really entering another innovative development in our general public and culture. virtual headset

  3. In other cases, a VR headset will also let you experience swimming. But it's more than that. It will also let you feel what it's like to be swimming under oceans with dozens of fish, sharks, and whales swimming around you. You will definitely feel like being underwater because you will be able to see and hear the beauty and sounds of these sea creatures. virtual headset
