Excellent casting. Gripping storyline. Felt like an adult/supernatural version of NeverEnding story where you feel super connected with their world, almost like you are in the story with them. The twist right at the end left me pretty destroyed. I will never forgive Netflix for cancelling this; watch this gem before it is gone for good.
“This is the first day of the rest of your afterlife.”
For some reason, I wasn’t keen to watch this series initially but I’m glad I did because it proved that sometimes you can be surprised.
The series follows the trials and tribulations of Nathan (played by Robbie Amell) who I completely thought must be of the Hemsworth line, with his squinting good looks and his charming ways.
It’s straight out of a ‘Black Mirror’ episode, exploring the concept of prolonging life beyond death and VR in a hilarious tongue-in-cheek sort of way, with lots of twists and turns. It has everything you could need from a great series. It’s the creation of Greg Daniels, of Parks and Rec/The Office/King of the Hill/The Simpsons so is really funny as you would expect. A great script, great characters, amazing and beautiful visuals, diversity, science and romance. Honestly it was such a surprise to me that it deserves a massive KUDOS.
Very enjoyable and the science bits are smart enough that I imagine hardcore sci fi nerds would give it a good thumbs up. I do, anyway! Find it on Amazon Prime and go watch it. Watch it now!
