The new Cinemax series Forbidden Science started last Friday, delivering a sexy, low-budget tale of renegade clones, memory downloads, and android property rights. Also, did we mention the sexy part?

Created by longtime concept designer Doug Brode, who previously worked props for Iron Man and JJ Abrams' Star Trek, Forbidden Science is a fun, Flash Gordon-style adventure story set at a company called 4Ever Innovations that makes clones, androids, and the nefarious technologies that support them. In last week's episode we met new hire Bethany, who is curious about the history of a mysterious 4Ever clone named Julia, whose gene and memory donor died the week before.

But forget about the plot for a minute - I'll tell you more about it tomorrow, when we'll be posting an interview with show creator Brode. Just focus on this scene, which demonstrates what happens when female geeks take over the world. Here mega-genius chief scientist Penny welcomes Bethany to the 4Ever team by giving her "a vibrator for your mind." Oh yeah. I'm really liking this show already.
