As I think I mentioned in the preview for Chatroom, I’m a sucker for anything technology. This documentary looks at the Second Life phenomenon where you are literally able to create a new you online and live in that world.
Whilst the idea of recreating myself as a skinny lothario who wears snakeskin trousers and being irresistible to women is very appealing, personally I don’t really see the point. It’s not necessarily something I’d do, as I’ve cocked this life up a fair bit and couldn’t cope with the embarrassment of messing up another.
However, we do love a late morning / early afternoon documentary in the Prado, maybe this could be the one.
