SwagCast is Back and a dark dystopic “Blade Runner-ish” Sci-Fi recreation of the Classic X -1 Episode of “The 7th Victim” by Robert Sheckley greets you this evening!
Ep originally aired in the year: 1957
In a future which regulates the instinct for violence by staging government-subsidized hunts—in effect making a social institution of murder—there is no place for human compassion. Or is there?
