Storyline

Episode 1: In the near future of 2014, Goku, a former police detective turned private eye, is investigating a mysterious string of apparent suicides of a special police unit investigating a ruthless weapons merchant. In his aggressive style, Goku almost joins that list, but he mysteriously survives and receives a cybernetic eye by parties unknown that can literally control any computer in the world. Now, he has a score to settle and is armed with what he needs to accomplish that. Episode 2: A desperate woman hires Goku to stop her brother, a nearly indestructible and increasingly unhinged supersoldier bent on revenge through rampage. Goku learns that the supersoldier was an unwilling guinea pig in a secret military experiment conducted by his father, a sadistic army general with getup quite similar to Street Fighter's M. Bison. However, all this is just the tip of the iceberg of dark family secrets in this extremely dysfunctional family. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>
