Possibly. I was under the belief that this was set in the real world. We happen to be visited by technological aliens, but it IS the real world. So, maybe I'm looking at it wrong. I mean; Sam dies and is revived by a vision, which also turns dust into the matrix. That is pretty magicy. Meh, just don't get your hopes up. If you enjoy it, good for you. I enjoyed most of it, it just got a bit boring now and then.
