Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Feed is a 10-episode British dystopian series about a piece of brain implant technology that is nearly ubiquitously implemented and ends up getting hacked. This has severe consequences for society and for the family who created the product. The Feed features lots of mature content relating to family drama, murder, and misuse of digital networking technology. There's cursing, strong sexual themes (including some simulated sex acts), and alcohol use.
Is It Any Good?
The uneven series attempts to combine sci-fi thrills with family drama as it reveals a frightening world that could exist in the not-too-distant future. It underscores the dangers that come with allowing companies to control powerful information networking technology, but it doesn't delve into the larger political, social, and economic implications of universal access to this technology. Meanwhile, much of the series concentrates on the Hatfields' long-standing dysfunctional family relationships, only some of which are driven by the ethical conundrums created by their business. If you like dystopian stories, The Feed is entertaining enough, but it isn't thoughtful enough to have lasting impact.
