Description

It’s the late 1960s, and a California TV repairman named Bob sees an opportunity to help people cheat death with the new science of cryonics. But freezing dead people isn’t easy. And apologizing for the mistakes you make along the way? Even harder.

I came here to escape politics - it's impossible, apparently. Your narrow view completely ruined this episode for me. Really disappointed, as I love this show.

I cant believe he said at the end that people have 'given'/donated themselves for the science and he can do whatever he likes to them, even 'make burgers'. completely disgusting, that he doesn't see the ethical isssue to it. It's not about the 'contract' but the moral conduct of it all.

this man deserves to be prosecuted, regardless of his intent. What he did is completely unethical and flat out wrong. Criminal.

L K He definitely sounded like he was lying and got caught because he didn't expect the TAL staff to contact the other people involved.
