Who remembers VR.5, the unfortunately short-lived scifi show from the mid 90's?
Lori Singer stars as Sydney Bloom, the daughter of a scientist who was working on virtual reality technology. The 5 in VR.5 refers to the shows 'fifth level' of virtual reality, in which a person can interact with another and have effects on the physical world. It was a really trippy show with a vocal fanbase.
The theme music came to the composer in a dream, which was very much in keeping with the surreal and oneiric nature of the show. It's actually a fantastic soundtrack, and a limited number of CD's were printed and privately sold during the late 90's.
Starring a post-Footloose Lori Singer and a pre-Buffy Anthony Head, VR.5 was broadcast during 1995 and, like so many shows of this type in Australia, relegated to the 10.30pm time slot. Oddly, only ten episodes were aired during the US run, but all 13 were shown overseas. I used to avidly wait for it and eat chicken rolls while it played, such simple joys.
