Quote from: Mister Six on May 03, 2020, 05:44:40 AMThe thought of a capitalist afterlife stresses me out so much I don't want to watch this. Is that a bad reason to not bother?

Quote from: Ant Farm Keyboard on May 05, 2020, 02:57:10 PMAlso, Paul Lieberstein is Greg Daniels' brother-in-law, and, for a while, Angela Kinsey was married to The Office writer Warren Lieberstein, making her his sister-in-law.
Quote from: Small Man Big Horse on May 05, 2020, 10:46:54 AMI was really enjoying this until the final episode, which had quite the tonal shift and was a little too plot heavy for my liking. The decision to (Major Spoilers Ahead) Spoiler alertmake Nathan a cold blooded vicious murderer isn't one I'm happy with either, okay, he thought he was protecting Nora's life but he could have just trapped the attempted killer in the lift, or knocked him unconscious, but to dispatch him in the way he did was far too brutal and after doing such a thing I'm not even sure I want him to end up with her. If it comes back for a second season they may of course address this, but if it is cancelled after one season it's a pretty bloody bleak ending to the show[close]as well.
Quote from: peanutbutter on May 05, 2020, 04:49:26 PMIsn't the underlying thing here that he isn't necessarily a very nice guy? The 2gig limit excused a good bit of this for me though, like, if you're working to solve a thing under very limited resources you'll just go with the most certain way you can. There's a decent bit of mileage in that as a personality trait actually, like, the code he wrote for the cheaper option might have some deeply inhumane shit in it.Tbh my biggest concern with the series is that it gets overly caught up on the narrative around the concept. I'm surprised with how engaging I found it but he's so fucking good at writing characters that I'd rather it focused more on that side of things that get lost in drama.
QuoteAnyways, despite the very meh critical reception (which I really don't get at all) I'd say a second season is a lock. The initial IMDb response (8.3 from 5.3k votes) is really strong by Amazon standards.
