I think any fan of Science Fiction or Fantasy has to be willing to take a leap of faith and accept some outrageousness. It's up to the person telling the story to make it engaging and plausible enough that others will buy into it.

Most of the time I'm not bothered by it, but sometimes it gets so complex that I have no idea what the intention of the 'science' is meant to do.

Understand what you mean there. Sometimes they try too hard to sell their concept as having basis in reality.

No. Would you recommend it?

ETA - oh, wait, is that the one where hair is a drug? Or something like that. If so, watched a couple of episodes then lost interest.

hair is a drug? I'm not aware of the concept

This is about robots becoming sentient and they journey through self-discovery.

I think they rolled the hair like a cigarette and smoked it? It was a British show.

It was called The Aliens

Quote:
The premise in a nutshell: aliens have come to earth. Handily for both the SFX budget and the purposes of political allegory, they look exactly like us but in shell suits. Humans mistreat them, call them “Morks”, force them to work in menial jobs and live in a lawless walled ghetto called Troy where they sell their hair for Earthlings to smoke as a recreational drug.

Yeah, it was a bit weird. Only watched a few episodes before giving up on it.
