High Commodore Kajules Teraflop (Craig Bednar) leads a group of devoted “techoccultists” who live by the motto, “Life is technology, technology is life.” Dressed in pope-like garb, Teraflop preaches about the wonders of computers and all the gizmos and gadgets that help our lives run better, but warns against the demons disguised as pornography and spam that bombard us daily.

There are a few laughs and some interesting observations scattered throughout this hour-long comedy, but the show short-circuits when Teraflop starts fighting the demons. The use of video and music in this local production is impressive, but most of the battle scenes with Lilithium (Aimee Siple) and her minions for control of the Technospere seem like a bunch of friends goofing off and trying to make each other crack up. For the rest of us, hitting the escape button is a better option.
