Exhibitionism abounds as spying and lying take a cue from Big Brother in FWD: Life Gone Viral
From this point, things get ugly, amid a rich vein of comical discourse and defensiveness around issues of privacy, revenge and pathological degrees of attention-seeking. The Russian spymaster, from his vantage, sees it all: "Soon we will have diseases of overexposure, diseases for which we still have no name." It may be strange to say, but there's something refreshing and affirming about a group of characters who, even in the face of their own mortality, can prove petty, vindictive assholes to each other. Our cyborg-selves end up pretty human after all.
