No, it is not Firefly or Battlestar Galactica.  But maybe you, like I, are starved for good science fiction, yet feel that almost everything out there is rot, whether written or on the screen.  For eleven episodes — until cancellation of course — you can pretend that the rest of the world is more like you than it really is.  The premise is that aliens have sent a pulsating fractal signal which is transforming human DNA and turning some of us into evil replicators.  Only a crackerjack team of beautiful women, nerds, bald black career bureaucrats, and midgets can stop them.  The philosophical content is to query whether evolution isn’t repugnant by its very nature, and why we think we are so special.  Don’t expect the sky, but if you are at all tempted, try it, more info here.
