DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
APPARENTLY the future of everything was in jeopardy for a while there at the end of season one, but we’re fine now. No, spoke too soon. XIII — who’s a guy, the main guy — gets tangled up with a group of anti-globalisation agitators with big ambitions, even though he tells them, repeatedly, he doesn’t want to get involved. It’s because of a girl, mainly. Betty. He saves her when she’s in danger of being bashed to death by a riot squad. The Government’s soon after them (love the loony President) but what’s their connection to a letter Nicolas Tesla wrote in 1894? It’ll be some mad, fun conspiracy.
