I’ve recently got hooked on this Saturday morning cartoon. It’s actually one of the best science fiction programs on TV today, it’s depiction of the near-future seems more realistic than any other program I can think of, while still far-out enough to be entertaining. I’ve also been paying attention to the level of detail, in a scene in a high-speed train station there is a voice announcing arriving and departing trains, and I noticed that the stops on the trains were very far apart. This makes sense with a train that travels hundreds of miles an hour, but what impressed me was that somebody thought of that and saw that it was included in the BACKGROUND NOISE. The future architecture seems realistic and functional (I believe the series is set in 2040) and just when I was beginning to think that maybe everything was too futuristic and new, there was an episode where they are in a smaller town and most of the buildings looked like they were build in the middle of the 20th century, but had futuristic appliances, landing pads, and other details added on.
Oh yeah, Ro is cute too. All around good show.
