This looks very interesting.
Looks like my birthday is coming one day late!
This is really, really good so far.
Deals with virtual reality (in a way) and emergent AI. I def recommend. Might be the best show of the year for me?
Spoiler: just realized
...They're in the computer (their minds) from the very first episode! Which means they're trapped in there forever... Or am I wrong?
I mean, he's schizo, so maybe his brother popping in and out is "normal," but the whole main world also seems surreal, ya know? Might've not been intentional, but it works. Heh.
I've noticed quite a few things the second time through.
Lemur shows up in a painting.
Yeah! I just finished the series (I binge watched it) ... I'll need to give it a second viewing to really appreciate it, I think.
I liked it a lot; especially the retro-futurism of the real world.
Some episodes were much stronger than others and I wonder if it suffered a little in editing??
Yeah, the pacing was off for the whole thing? I would've put eps 1 and 2 together maybe? I dunno. Still loved it.
Someone on Facebook described it as Terry Gilliam producing a movie from a Philip K Dick novel. Heh.
Sure, I see that--
Fear and Loathing meets Minority Report??
*Take my money*
Binge watched it last weekend when it popped up randomly on my recommendations.
They tried something, Made the wrong choices and it didn't work.
The series has no beginning, middle or end. It's trying to be more like a dream sequence that make sense emotionally but not logically... AKA Brazil.
It could have been an amazing 1.5 hour movie. Instead they stretched it out over 7.5 hours. Every scene is too long that it just bores you. Every story is just the same one from the very beginning just with different visuals each episodes. They're not even creative with the presentation. They WANT you to know it's the same story just in different package.
They want to associate it in your mind with Don Quixote but if they did then they missed the mark and looked at that book superficially.
