No, I can totally understand that. The GitS:SAC universe, like most late S/F, ignores a lot of the consequences the tech depicted has, like the simple fact that it's rapidly accelerating towards a denouement of some kind just because there's so much integration, but it's an interesting, if somewhat complicated and potentially disturbing time period. It's only twenty years away.

Jungle Cruise was a rather disturbing episode, but I did like the way it fleshed out Batou's character a lot. The two CIA agents were a lot more dorky in the original; their Japanese was terrible, and you were never sure if it was an act or not. The butterflies in the flashback are real blood-drinking butterflies found in Southeast Asia called calpytra eustrigata.
