Series: Harsh Realm
Very short-lived TV series created by Chris Carter in 1999 which was so thoroughly Screwed by the Network (FOX), that's hard to believe that Hanlon's Razor really applies. Nine episodes were filmed but only three were originally aired before the show was cancelled.

The story revolved around US soldiers trapped in a virtual reality. There was a lot of conspiracy and paranoia, which is not entirely surprising in a series created by Chris Carter. And of some of the scenarios depicted, such as using the virtual reality to explore the outcome of a terrorist attack on New York City, take on a slightly spooky quality since the events of September 2001.

This show provides examples of the following tropes:
