we kind of stumbled across Upload - a 1 hour Sitcom kind of deal about the afterlife. Pilot episode was a lot of exposition but we haven't decided on episode 2 yet. Anyone else here on that? It's no Tiger King.
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

The pilot is an hour. The rest of the episodes are closer to a half hour.
The wife and I enjoyed it. It felt a bit like a happy version of Black Mirror. The way all the cool technology is used and controlled by corporations is super depressing, but the characters are enjoyable so it leaves you feeling much better as opposed to Black Mirror which is almost traumatizing. I don't think it quite hits the Office or P&R level highs but its solid and after that ending I'm looking forward to season 2, which was picked up.
I think it depends on what you want out of a show once its season ends. I recently binged Devs, and I really like its ending. I won’t spoil too much about Upload, but I felt its ending didn’t try to give too many answers. Instead I thought the season was constructed to force a second season. In a vacuum, I enjoyed Upload and I will watch the next season, but it wasn’t very satisfying like Devs was.

Thanks Roy ... it was Damien Rice. I, too, saw Hurley on the TV set. I wondered if maybe they were showing some news story from Australia (or America) & Hurley just happened to be in the piece. Hurley was in a lot of the previews for next week ...
