Reality TV in a sci-fi setting

Get Ellen Gray’s take over at

It’s difficult at this stage to parody “reality” television, which has taught us to accept lying and manipulation as part of the game, but “Virtuality” does its best, losing touch with actual reality only at the moment when an exultant Fallon tells his show’s host, computer scientist Billie Kashmiri (Kerry Bishé) that “Edge” has just set a new ratings record – 5 billion viewers. On Fox.

Now that’s the kind of science fiction you’d think a network would want to get behind.
