Cyber-terrorism? We’re Cybergeddon it

- September 24th, 2012

Delivery-wise, we’re Cybergeddon it, to put a 21st-century twist on an old Def Leppard song. But as always, content will determine if anyone wants to rock, er, watch.

A new digital drama series called Cybergeddon – starring Canadian Missy Peregrym (pictured above), who is best known for her starring role on Rookie Blue (Global, ABC) – debuts Tuesday, Sept. 25 exclusively on Yahoo! online, in more than 25 countries and in 10 languages.

Cybergeddon, from Anthony E. Zuiker (CSI), consists of nine digital chapters, rolled out at the pace of three per day, for three consecutive days.

Peregrym plays cyber-terrorism agent Chloe Jocelyn, who becomes a fugitive when she is accused of the types of serious cyber-crimes that she has dedicated her professional life to stopping.

There’s a cyber-trail a mile long pointing to Chloe’s guilt. But is she being set up? And is it all just a distraction for something bigger?

We have to say, Chloe’s cohorts are a little too quick to believe the worst of her. They’re the cyber-crime experts, supposedly, so they should know what’s possible in this realm, right? They burst into the mode of “we gotcha, punk” too rapidly for the sake of believability.

Also, I laughed out loud at the overt product placement for a certain anti-virus company.

All things considered, though, Cybergeddon is a slick, fast-paced endeavour. And Missy Peregrym, always easy on the eyes, gets to kick some serious butt, both cyber- and physical.
