Life Could Be A Dream

Reverie

There’s a new show on television, one that I had been avoiding for some reason. It stars Sarah Shahi, of Person of Interest fame. And it is a very slick but entertaining programme.

The concept isn’t new: a computer-generated ‘holiday’ from life first presented in Total Recall in 1990. The idea that it could be an extension of one’s life after death was shown to us in Vanilla Sky in 2001. But as a vehicle of a former police hostage negotiator, this makes it a more ‘feel-good’ television show.

Sarah Shahi

I knew her face looked familiar, but I didn’t recognize from where, right away, because she smiled a number of times, and she never seemed to do that as Shaw on PoI. And is it possible that she’s also looking younger these days? Being a descendant of the Shah of Iran has given her some very good genes.

She is also showing vulnerability in this show, so we are seeing Sarah as a more likeable person. She’s human, after all.

Conclusion

I always have a point about these reviews, and this one will not come as a surprise to those readers who have followed my blogs.

The tag line, shown in the show’s poster (above), is:

Sometimes we all need help finding our way home.

This show is an allegory for what happens when we get trapped in this physical (holographic) world. We forget that it’s not real, and we get caught up in the machinations of living here.

We need to wake up from our coma and reconnect with those that we left behind on the ‘other side of life’. There, that’s the point of the show.
