Fifty years have passed since mankind began migrating to the new frontier: Mars. It's an age where most culture is produced by AI, and people are content to be passive consumers. There's a girl scraping a living in the metropolis of Alba City, she's working part-time while trying to become a musician. She's always felt like something is missing. Her name is Carole. There's another girl. Born to a wealthy family in the provincial town of Herschel City, she dreams of becoming a musician, but nobody around her understands. She feels like the loneliest person in the world. Her name is Tuesday. A chance meeting brings them together.

(One episode watched):

I could not get excited about this show. The ugly, sordid culture on Mars turned me off; do we have to go to another planet for something so commonplace here? It sort of seemed as if the message here was that everybody is out to get these two girls, the ignored, unwanted orphan and the suffocated rich girl, therefore they must be good. But nothing about them really intrigued me, so I have a hard time caring if they become famous performers or not. We never reached the point at which their personalities 'clicked' and I came to see them as people who I could understand and sympathize with. They basically remained strangers. I actually found the sometimes drunk, embittered music producer who they will undoubtably team up with to be more interesting than them, but even he doesn't seem like enough to make this show worth my time. Mars itself didn't excite me either; there's some futuristic high tech, but not anything really radical and original. And why do they sometimes build such ancient-looking, rundown buildings there? The sky is blue and for the most part there is nothing different than what would presumably be going on back on earth. It's almost like at the last minute the makers of this show decided to slightly alter a tale taking place on earth and instead have it be happening on Mars. But above all my main problem with this show was that I just can't care all that much about either Carole or Tuesday.
