[Story time with H0tl1ne! Now with more speculation than usual.]
The weird lady with a screenplay-writing gerbil has been around for a while and we still can't explain how the heck this card was supposed to work flavor-wise. I hope to give it a go in this review.
So, the way I see it...
You've met that kind of a person at least once in your life. This person might not be mental, crazy, bonkers or loony, just a little too much... focused on a thing. Be it that guy who keeps telling you about the video series he'd been watching lately, or a kid who goes on without a stop about Netrunner (wink!), or...
Yeah, you get the idea. Fixated - this is the word.
Now imagine befriending such a person. Sits all day in their mom's basement and just watches movies. Knows every bit of cinematic trivia since Lumière brothers. Amazing pop-culture trope knowledge. There is a downside though - everything they know, they've learned from the TV. And everything they see, hear, think is immediately associated with it.
You're in the business of netrunning. Instead of just going public with every bit of dark secrets you steal away (and attracting some instant karma), you forward them to your delusional friend for safekeeping until it can be safely released. This results in many hilarious situations, because everything you give them, they immediately assume to be a movie script.
Might sound like a stretch, but look at this!
"Yeah. Two stars out of five. The same bit of dissolved cereal every year."
"What about this?"
"Psh. Please. An obvious jump on the academy awards, is all."
"Hey, Miranda Rhapsody is making a new musical with a lion, a scarecrow and a bioroid!"
"It's called Wizard of Oz and was around since, I don't know, forever?"
Wait. It gets worse.
"Yeah. Minority Report. What are you, living under a rock or what?"
"So I've had these two guys following me around. Strange haircuts, fabulous glasses, guns..."
"You mean Starsky & Hutch. Yeah, seen that too. Bloody philistine."
"Yo, ever heard a corporation amass so much money they would buy a third-world country on the spot?"
"Wow, they're making a Stand on Zanzibar movie now? F*cking finally!"
"Oh, you've finally watched Network! How did you like Beale's speech anyways?"
"Wait, you know about Beale?"
"You did! I know you would! Now along with me: I'm mad as hell, I'm not gonna take it anymore... I'm mad as hell..."
"So I've been in my office and some guy in the glasses tried to shoot me! In the head!"
"Wow. Congrats on discovering Matrix. Spoilers: don't watch the second one. Third one... Know what? Don't watch it, too."
"Two of big-ass AI merging together to avoid Turing police, it's..."
"...Neuromancer. Come on, Gibson is so eighties."
"Don't you tell me they're pulling 'Hoff back from the dead for this one."
"Never as bad as Jim Carrey, baby."
