Episode 1

4 Extra Debut. It’s 2116 in a dystopian world where eugenics, promiscuity and happiness are gently enforced. Stars Justin Salinger.

It's 2116 and Helmholtz Watson and Bernard Marx are token rebels in an irretrievably corrupted society where promiscuity is the norm, eugenics a respectable science, and the drug Soma freely available.
