In a future society where super computers control every aspect of human life and forbid reproduction, a young couple decides they will secretly have a baby. A somewhat moralistic tale of what might happen to a society that relies to much on faceless technology. Genre: Science-Fiction

A morality tale of love versus duty in a Dystopian future where people live their lives through Virtual Reality dream machines while a computer regulates their society.

I really loved this episode. Machines have taken over and humans are on the run. Trust and love are in question and in rare supply. This episode is set 2,000 years in the future. I was interested from the very beginning. At the end of its run, CBSMT pulled out another great story.

The "Wedding March" is from Wendy Carlos' "By Request" album.

I think this may be the fourth (at the very least) RMT episode about a hyper-rational future dystopia, with the same-old, same-old theme of "human emotions are superior to coldly efficient reason." The "twist ending" is also straight out of an old Twilight Zone episode.

A very good Sci fi Episode, with what was the usual theme of Sci fi in the Seventies- the Computer takeover of the world- but with a bonus- the dreamy voice of Kristoffer Tabori!
