I downloaded UPLOAD for a plane ride.

There are a lot of futuristic shows that display technology ruining people. That’s why it’s such a pleasant surprise to see the tech-heavy UPLOAD continuing to be the easiest show to binge on Prime Video. I’m not going to get on a soapbox and write about the tech ramifications nor wax poetically about why you should watch this show. I’m simply going to say that if you loved Greg Daniels work on THE OFFICE or PARKS AND REC, you should enjoy UPLOAD as well.

High-concept comedy usually is challenging to pull off. The last great one was THE GOOD PLACE. Although UPLOAD doesn’t compute to become an instant classic like that meaningful comedy, it does a serviceable job with an extremely likable cast.

The metaverse is the buzzword in today’s tech space, and it’s also the central location in UPLOAD. Despite the fact it’s based on tech, it’s not the advancements in computing that doom us in UPLOAD; it’s the people.

The complete second season is available on Prime Video.
