I don't really read/watch Slice-of-Life, for I have already experienced the best the genre has to offer.

Slice-of-Life and mystery? Already sounds way too busy.

Double-post for cultural enrichment.

So it has come to my attention that HBO is interested in adapting Qualityland into a series, no doubt in an attempt to find their next Game of Thrones.
I don't think this will be a particularly authentic adapation, since I personally consider it requiring a too high IQ too silly for Burger tastes (the titular "Qualityland" is Germany after rebranding itself in a daring PR campaign), but I can see why they'd be interested in it, for it features a dystopian future that is much more likely to happen than any gay cyberpunk future.

  • Everyone's stuck in a filter bubble, to the point that political parties would make contradicting promises and ad campaigns for different people, which nobody really notices since Not-Facebook and Not-Tinder only recommend people that fit into your bubble
  • The almighty algorithms dictate your everyday life. Not-Amazon will even make orders for you, whether you actually need it not
  • Pretty much everyone is a self-absorbed asshole

You will probably be triggered - or aroused - by the presence of a hacker lady of probably Turkish descent (who will no doubt be played by a sassy black lady in the HBO version). This is science-fiction, after all :lol:
The protagonists are also in varying shades of being left-leaning, but the book isn't particularly optimistic about fighting the system.

In fact they accomplish fuckall at the end besides some meaningless likes on Not-Twitter by people who will probably have forgotten about all of this next month or so.
Turns out it's not easy to change anything if a handful of MegaCorps control everything, just like in IRL
Bottom line: You probably want The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy for something more funny and with less pottery regarding the depressing development of the internet in Current Year.

The HOBO spin will probably be that globo homo centralized control of the internet is a good thing™ or some horseshit like that.
