This was pretty awesome a lot of Buddhism mixed in as well, that's why this felt like GitS :)
And loved the TV commercials and stuff and Brain Dream was sorta like MS Kinect XD

One of the most educational episode of the series.

The beginning and middle. Especially when Spike tries to confess Londes about how he's saying different subjects.
Boo: "Boo!"

Spike got jealous of Eds milk and pours himself a bowl of cereal with beer.
Lovely.

I liked all the T.V channel changes in the episode.

RIP Big Shots? You shall be missed, oh T.V show inside a T. show.

Lol this ep is not about anti-religion, it's more about escapism. This kid was left at a vege state, he wanted everyone to be like him and doesn't want to be alone. He cannot accept the harsh reality that he was left at this state so he wanted to make everyone like him (without a body and just the mind). It shows a scene where Faye said if she didn't have a body she didn't have to pay her debt, which shows she just doesn't want to pay the debt but it doesn't change the fact she has a debt. Everything that kid said about religion and reality is his way of justifying his action. Which hold some truth in it, like how he said television(media) manipulate the way people think. I'm not anti-religion, I studied sociology so I have a sense of what religion does.
Anyways just cause the kid was defeated, that doesn't mean what he said about religion and reality is false. Spike said "If you want to dream, dream alone", it means if you want to escape from reality, escape alone because other people have their life to live and also have face reality. The only fail I see in this ep is Spike calling him a kid just because he doesn't want to face reality. Spike can't fight back when the kid talk about reality and when he asked Spike what does he know about him.

So much truth in such a depressing episode.

I love these kinds of episodes where a human brain manipulates or "hacks" other people through the constantly evolving powerful media tools. Cowboy Bebop is one of the first (animated) TV Series I remember doing this, probably with some inspiration from Ghost in the Shell. Anyway the concept wasn't exactly new at this point.

I remember well the next episode, from here on it's an emotionally ride that only stops at the end... I must brace myself.

We finally get to see Eins worth as a data dog after the other episode made him look like just another dog.
It's funny that the CB creators couldn't imagine wireless hand controllers in the future.

"You can be a DJ while you work out!"
"Prohibiting programs such as the one you are watching!"
"Papa!"

Interesting balance of humor and creepiness in this episode.

"And this time, I hope you have sweet dreams." awww, Ed.

This episode was very strange. The intro let me so curious as to what was about to happen and then to stumble onto a channel where they were interviewing Faye was very weird. I was interested to find out where this ended up and that it was all created by a lonely guy in a colma.. I wonder how he got all that network setup if he's injured to the point he can't move. No bounty on this one as well probably. Definitely see that the end is coming near if the bounty show has been cancelled.

So this episode confirms Ein animal instincts + intelligent is on another level, even for Ed.
