Wanted to like it but couldn't.

Old guy with the 70's eyewear -- Bernie Goetz?

I enjoyed that. Thanks bunnytricks. Nice and dry. I started to clue in at the point where Sterling's parents are Copperfields.
And Yuki is great: "I'm not Japanese, you moron".

What's less than "meh"?

It's almost like a documentary, but in an ironic way. Like they're mocking a documentary. Or making a mockery of something in a documentary style, but not letting on that it's a joke. Someone should coin a term for this because I think we will be seeing a lot more of this original genre.

The usual term is "mockumentary".

Class Goat: That's dumb. I suggest "Documock".

You get that chococat was making a joke, right?
