    Hated it! Not one likeable character; no context or rationale; barely any dialogue; no sense or purpose....
    and it was that same goddam shade of overpriced refrigerator grey that dominates 21st century decor.

    I would have liked to see more complex questions. That was the theme of the movie, no?

    Anyway, with the new GPT3 AI, it seems quite easy to pass the Turing test.

    Bicentennial Man

    Great movie

    Thought of Bicentennial Man when answering

    thus at what point does working mechanisms become "alive or dead"

    in the thread Viruses Alive or Dead?

    There are two foreign languages sci fi series that I watched recently and enjoyed.

    The first one is Dark a German series about a small village with a space time wormhole which leads to some very strange and unexpected incidents. Its really convoluted as people keep travelling through the wormhole and end up related to each other in weird ways.

    The second one is called The Rain about the after effects of a rain borne virus which wipes out most of the population. This is a Danish show made for teens.

    I also watched Colony which is about L.A. being invaded by outside forces, aliens maybe but I dropped it after a few episodes

    There is Black Mirror with episodic stories

    If you want something different there is a Korean drama called Extraordinary You about a school girl who realises that she is a character in a comic book and works against the author to change her destiny in the story. More fantasy than sci fi though

    There is Snowpiercer which is about survivors of a man made climate change crisis living in a train that basically keeps them alive by constantly running

    There are some oldies but goodies like the Back to the Future series
