It is entertaining, although it is *usually* not the most intellectual
entertainment around. But I really liked how they understood the sheer
power of exponential replication in the finale of season two.

Especially the song "I must go beyond" is really a good transhumanist

As I am, a younger man,
And I dream of distant plans,
I wonder, where I could learn more.
To go beyond these ancient walls,
Go beyond these ghostly halls,
Go beyond...
And beyond...
To explore.
