In a near-perfect society, humans enjoy virtually anything their hearts desire by simply staying connected to a centuries-old technology known as Fractale. One day, a teenage boy saves a girl on the run from some dangerous pursuers. Suddenly his quiet life turns to chaos when he's caught between a religious order determined to save Fractale, and those who want to destroy it.
I can't find the words to describe this show. I could use such phrases as "wasted potential" and "good story in search of a tone" but it just doesn't come close to how I feel about Fractale. When I realised within the first two episodes roughly how the show would resolve itself, that should have sent alarm bells ringing. But in the end, the show managed to barely, and I stress the word "barely", scrape through in my books. Does this save the show? OK, let us define a thing, all right?
