Whenever I see this episode I cannot help but reflect on the similarity at certain points to the Matrix, but I guess that was an old idea even in the '80s. This is not one of my favourite episodes, but it does have some real high notes for me. In particular I think Tom's continuing bashing on the pseudo-Orwellian lingo and technobabble are great, I like the whole anti-Anteater running gag, and there are some pretty hilarious riffs on visual details (the Nirvana lyrics, the bad video effects, the "this is the amount of pure cocaine..." line).

Is the original short story worth reading?
