Another Sci-Fi show purporting humanity to be "hundreds" of years in the future and the only really new tech seems to be spaceships, see-through smartphones and ... nothing. People are still running around with guns, having surgeries with Y2K tech, working manual labor, believing in gods and living in a class-based society.
