The WVM team journeys to a bygone era of NYC, y’know, when all the inhabitants were zoo animals, and the theater was a gala extravaganza of light, sound, and magic.

We find that she has curiously married Dr. Who (Matt Smith) and that no one has noticed the replacement of Winston Churchill with Dick Solomon (Jonathan Lithgow.) A Netflix series surprisingly focused on themes of family and duty, it provides a good deal of worldview content.
