Reception[edit | edit source]
Praised for its exceedingly realistic graphics and artistic usage of still images to portray complex issues on global interrelationships and quantum electrodynamics, this show has been watched by everyone. This show is so popular that it will interrupt any show on TV whenever a new episode comes out. Indeed, this show is so powerful that anyone who sits through an entire episode will sympathize with the main characters by feeling great amounts of pain and suffering to the ear, the eyes, and eventually the brain. You would have to be made of stone not to feel anything as you are hypnotised by the monotonic theme music and bright colours.
Some people claim that this is not a show, and instead will switch channels immediately. However, these people are simply ignorant about daily issues threatening mankind, and are deemed "normal people". Poor reception of the show in the distant past was primarily attributed to weak signal strength and bent antennas.
