Indoctrination theory is a bunch of nonsense self-deluded fans cooked up, the Extended Cut and Leviathan DLC all but disprove it. However, BioWare refuses to official strike the theory down because they don't want to destroy deluded fanboy head canon.
This is overly harsh. IT was one of the most impressive things I had seen and I was a believer, because it was the ONLY way that the ending made close to perfect sense. If IT had been true it would have made everything brilliant. It was Bioware's perfect out, but they refused to take it, but instead gave us the extended cut, which certainly was better than the original, but nowhere near satisfying to most people.
The documentaries on the IT were very compelling and I enjoyed them, although some of them went a bit too far and lasted like over an hour when the point could have been made in less than 10 minutes.
Nevertheless, I view IT as a missed opportunity for Bioware.
