As the only living part of a futuristic museum exhibit meant to replicate the “ideal” human existence, Jim has everything a man could wish for. With complimentary microwave dinners, unlimited thirst-quenching soda, and over five television channels to choose from, who could ask for anything more? But when his cyborg caretakers decide to introduce a female into the exhibit, his world changes forever. As he tries to relate to Caz, a living, breathing woman, Jim discovers that maybe his sheltered life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. After a few chaotic days together, they decide that Caz is going to leave on her own. After she escapes, a lonely Jim is forced to decide whether he has the courage to follow her and face the outside world.

M. Night Shyamalan plot twist, the female is actually also in captivity in a wildlife park yet believes it to be her natural habitat.
Having worked in a lot of zoos, I'm impressed with the wild-caught vs. captive-bred animal depictions in the actors' work. Bravo
Over 13 artificial flavors blended to perfection
"Guys really live in apartments like this and don't see any issue"

Jim was pretty happy until She showed up...
Hobbit Girly
This kind of reminds me of the Truman Show, except he's aware of his surroundings and doesn't question it.
I imagine this is what the animals feel like in the damn zoo. Especially the dolphins and killer whales. My god...

So, Adam and Eve were not created .......... they escaped!
I liked it, especially the "captive raised" verse "wild" but the ending bothered me. For him to be able to escape so easily following her escape and then find her so easily but for them to have been unable to locate her after her escape, or even Jim's ability to navigate to her location after knowing nothing but his "cage", just sat wrong. Like they could not come up with a solid ending and so just threw in something "happy".
I appreciate the originality of this look at a possible future! Not another bunch of guys running around the desert in gas masks.
Andy Cohen
I was so worried they were gonna show a sad elder Jimme in that chair when in turned around. whew

Kind of amusing.
Plot: In a world run by robots (post-human-era), the robots run a museum dedicated to humanity. One exhibit is the only Human they have raised in captivity ... they call him Jim.
Keen to find out more about these amusing human creatures, they introduce a female human from the wild human reserve to propagate with him. She escapes back to the wild human reserve.
He escapes to the wild human reserve and hunts her down (in the non-threatening meaning of hunt). THE END.

These videos are like short episodes of black mirror. Love it
Jim is such a great character, very likeable.
Pointless, for Jim to escape to find her. ...Did you see that look in her eyes, as she hissed:
"I will NEVER propagate with you!"
Jim has much to learn about women.
God help him. 🤓

I gave it a like but I didn't like the ending
Felipe Berlim
I just loved it. What a good idea, good story, with good actors. No big props, special effects, just a set. And they made the best of it to entertain. Congratulations!
Joseph Russel Timpug Ison
If machines designed a way to control us don’t you think they would have also designed a way to keep us controlled? :(

What a weird but interesting James and Lily Potter story
This was pretty damned great.
Gabriel Tobing
2:02 I knew something was wrong, the gas from the spray went straight through him!
Why I don't do circus or zoos. Unless it is a heal and release. I love bird ones that have a show, but one of the points is to train or retrain birds to fly or hunt. Then animal sanctuaries for abused domesticated animals
One of my favorite places to go in Canada is a donkey sanctuary. Nothing more peaceful than brushing a donkey.
Tony Hidalgo
I have the same blue blanket he had on his bed. Is my life a life?
Jarred J
That last scene kind of symbolizes Adam and Eve and the tree of knowledge. A new beginning
The Nagual Zone
I absolutely HATE Zoos. They are symbols of everything that is utterly vile & depraved in humancruel....Loved this one - fabulous job!
