The ridiculous title should have been enough to keep me at bay but noooo I had to watch this on cable. The story is about a computer programmer genius named Milo who graduates and moves on up quickly when offered a job at NURV (the lead character loosely based upon Bill Gates). The company has been working on project Synapse and they need Milo to help them meet their launch so he agrees and takes the job. Of course from there he learns that the company isn't exactly what he thought and he learns not to trust certain people. It's a bare bones thriller that offers absolutely no thrills, just dull deception.
