Delete (2013) Mini-Series Review and Spoiler

Watching Delete on Amazon Prime and I have to say it’s pretty good so far.  Stop here and don’t read on if you want to watch the episode one and two of the Delete (Season 1).  Here comes the spoiler!

Delete starts of with the government think a bunch of secretive hackers had tried to destroy a nuclear plant in Iran and overtook the United States’ testing missiles to kill the civilians during a missile test.  Obviously, Iran would think it had to be the United States that did it to them.  The destructive missile test in the United States had the government believed that this was the work of a group of hackers known as Dubito.

The United States government decided to go after the secretive hacker group Dubito, but unknown to them all of the hackers in Dubito group got killed off one by one by an assassin branch of the United States government.  If you had watched the Bourne Identity movie, then the government assassin operatives are sort of like Jason Bourne.  Anyhow, the United States government couldn’t understand why there was a directive to kill the Dubito hackers when they were trying to bring them in alive.

Meanwhile, Jessica Taylor (a reporter) tried to get Daniel Garson to contact Dubito so they could meet up with one of the Dubito members.  Basically, Jessica Taylor wanted to write an in-depth story on why there was a cover-up for the most recent glitch on Iran’s nuclear plant.  Daniel told Jessica Taylor about the incident was a meltdown by a virus that was similar to Stuxnet, and so she told Daniel to contact the Dubito for more information.  Daniel got this information from the Dubito in the first place.

They were supposed to have a good talk with one of the Dubito members in a coffee shop and then out of nowhere the Dubito member got shot couple times.  Later on, this Dubito member got killed for real when the hospital equipment got malfunctioned.  Since the last member of the Dubito group got killed off, Daniel and Jessica were cut off from the information they needed.

Undeterred, Jessica and Daniel broke into a workplace of the last Dubito member who just died to find out if there could be any information that could be stored in the self-contained Intranet.  Daniel was able to decrypt some information and figured out that Dubito members knew what is going on.

Basically, Dubito members found out that the global web of computers got so interconnected to a point that it becomes self-conscious as if it’s an AI which nobody had built — because it built itself.  This AI then threatened to wreak havoc by performing dangerous experiments.  For an example, an attempt to blow up the nuclear plant in Iran was an experimentation, a puzzle which needed to be solved of the sort, and so the AI had a go at it.

Since the whole world is connected by cameras and phones and computers and many other electronic devices, this AI took the advantage of this to spy on people.  The AI got eyes everywhere and it could unleash havoc on anything it wanted.  Luckily, Daniel was able to save the data which Dubito had saved onto his portable hard-drive.  Unfortunate for him and Jessica, the AI didn’t want Daniel and Jessica to know more and so it tried to kill both of them.

Meanwhile, the government uploaded a virus onto the web to trick the AI into a trap so the virus could destroy the AI.  Unfortunately, the AI was smart enough to neutralize the virus.  The AI got so angry it declared war on humanity.  The AI wanted to make sure it could destroy the threats that could threaten it, and so the humanity must be destroyed.

This is so far I’ve gotten into the series.  Nonetheless, I think there is a big plothole to this whole series.  I think if the AI is so smart, it should make sure the humanity survives forever and would not know anything about its presence.  After all, if the humanity dies off, eventually the power grids that power the AI neural network would eventually die out.  Without power, the AI itself would not function.

Of course, you can argue that the AI is so smart that it could control and organize machines to produce more energy to power the AI’s neural network.  Nonetheless, the plot of this series is taken place in a modern period in which not everything is automated.  This means many things that work in concert to produce energy for everything may still need the touch of the human hands.  So, for the AI to declare on humanity at this point in time is like a suicidal mission that it’s on.

Jean-Claude Van Johnson Rocks Hard

I did a quick review of Jean-Claude Van Johnson series on Amazon, and the review below is a copy of that.  Anyhow, I hope you don’t fault me for grammatical error and such as I was writing it in a haste.  Enjoy!

(By clicking on this image you are going to visit Amazon for this product.  I have an Amazon Associate account and so if you purchase this product I will get a commission.  Just want to clarify this for you.)

Two episodes in and I love it.  I saw this series on Amazon a few times when I browsed for other movies and shows, but I always skipped this one as I thought oh come on J.C.?  I watched Bloodsport so long ago I hardly remember any detail of this movie, but because of Bloodsport, I have always known who J.C. is.  Nonetheless, I couldn’t remember why I stopped watching his other movies, and he is definitely much older now.  I guess I skipped Jean-Claude Van Johnson series because I thought J.C. was just being the old J.C., but I was so wrong.  After watching Jean-Claude Van Johnson, I don’t care if J.C. is being old or new J.C. because this series rocks hard.  J.C. also makes fun of himself in the series and that is making the series a lot more fun than it could have been.  His acting is pretty good in this series, and now I still don’t know why I watched so few of his older movies.  I recommend this series to anyone who wants to reminisce the past a bit but I assure you that J.C. is rocking hard in this new series and you may love it a lot.

Steep (Open Beta) Gameplay Episode 1 – 4K Resolution/PC

Check out my first gameplay for Steep.  This game is still in Open Beta phase, and so whatever you see here may not be the same when the game actually comes out for everyone to play.  Anyway, enjoy the game!

More info:  I play this game in 4K resolution at maximum graphics settings for the game.  My rig got SLI GTX 1080 graphics cards.  Unfortunately, my 4K monitor is only at 60Hz.  Right now, not sure YouTube is accepting 60fps 4K video or not, and so I only recorded the gameplay in 30fps.  Nonetheless, when I’m playing the game the fps rate is above 44 fps.  Yep, got SLI GTX 1080 graphics cards (meaning 2 GTX 1080 graphics cards together in one rig), and yet the fps is only above 44 fps when playing this game.  The graphics of the game is so awesome though.
