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.
