The webisodes from Ron Moore's TV-pilot-turned-Fox movie Virtuality showed up on Facebook a few days ago, and we finally had a chance to watch them. Our initial reaction is that while they look kind of cool, we're just not sure what to make of them; watch them after the jump.
The webisodes are in the form of a fake reality show-within-a-show called Edge of Never: Life on Phaeton, which follows the "real life" crew members of the ship Phaeton on their journey to save the Earth.
They're a bit like the confessionals from MTV's The Real World mixed with snippets of shipboard life, but mostly they feel like promos for the show. If that's the intent, then kudos to Fox for making promos that feel a little different and slicker than the norm. If they're supposed to work as stand-alone content like most other webisodes out there, then they're less successful.
We've embedded the first Webisode here, which looks like it was posted on YouTube by a fan. As far as we can tell, the rest are only on Facebook at the moment but we'll post them if we find them:
Meanwhile, here's a bunch of clips and behind-the-scenes videos for the show, which airs June 26 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
