A manic joyride into the world of today's new breed of tech worker, JPod updates Microserfs for the age of Google.
Ethan Jarlewski and five co-workers are bureaucratically marooned in JPod, a no-escape architectural limbo on the fringes of a massive Vancouver game-design company.
The six workers daily confront the forces that define our era: global piracy, bonehead marketing staff, people-smuggling, the rise of China, marijuana grow-ops and the ashes of the 1990s financial tech dream.
JPod's universe is amoral and shameless. The characters are products of their era even as they are creating it. Everybody in Ethan's life inhabits a moral grey zone. Nobody is exempt, not even his seemingly straight-laced parents.
Full of word games, visual jokes and sideways jabs, JPod throws a sharp, pointed dart into the heart of contemporary life.
