Yea its Classic but its bot the series. Its about these TALLY'S struggle with who she is and who her friends are. Not space people and a girl who's onky friend is a robot. Kinda sad.

I hate Tally but I also.love Shay and David and Zane (even though he's dead) and ee saw them.through Tally. That's why I loved her. We didn't see them through Aya like we did Tally.

I think it was a nice departure to leave the US, but it didn't really seem like another part of the world until they reached the rain forest so it was wasted really. The only thing I liked was seeing an economy based basically on Youtube as an after effect of the "mind rain". A term that still makes no sense to me.
