Television is often adept at showcasing our worst fears. A recent example of this is Utopia, a conspiracy thriller that first aired in early 2013 and despite critical success, it did not fare that well commercially and remains little known in general. In this research project, I will do an in depth analysis of the programme and look specifically at how it represents the dark and enigmatic world we live in today. This research will also look at how the show stands out amongst it’s genre in a way that is a reflection of the changing face of the genre and a possible shape of things to come in our own world.
