no, i'll bite. it is. it's a heady show that quickly dives into a well-done exploration of (among other things) identity, connectivity, and communication, with a jungian bent. its focus is on what each of these mean, and how they relate as they intersect with the real and digital world.
it was super prescient when it was made, and is an increasingly exceptionally relevant piece of media now that we've hit Present Day, Present Time! AHAHAHAHAHA!
there's a lot more to it, but getting to that would likely involve spoiling some plot elements that are best left as part of the experience of watching the show.
lain is also a super A E S T H E T I C show; it's visually quite beautiful, with a fascinating use of textures, particular for contrast or symbolism. the sound design is great. also, that theme song, mmm.
just watch, it's on laintracker. or, once the streaming is reinstated, tune it.
