It is the interesting story of “Uploading” human consciousness into a virtual paradise and henceforth the enduring journey into the afterlife. A sci-fi satirical Amazon original series released on 1st May 2020, Upload is surprisingly wonderful in every sense of the expectation. The creativity is so refreshing with momentous subjects haggled in a subtle and comical direction compelling thoughts about how life is so beautiful and full of opportunities.
It comes out as quite a surprise from what was being advertised in the trailer to a show that dives deep into human connections and the essence of the soul submerged around the world of social media building multiple layers of intrigue. Personalities that emerge at the onset to be one-dimensional are reflected to have numerous motivations and likeability. It follows the story of a young and ambitious programmer in Los Angeles named Nathan, dying in a suspicious self-driving car accident and is being uploaded to a digital version of heaven designed and owned by a corporate giant called “Lakeview”. His monotonous yet wealthy girlfriend pays the bills for his perpetual holiday at Lakeview but the story totally unfolds with Nathan finding comfort in the company of his customer service representative “Angel”. The characters’ budding romance and relationship is fundamental to the tale along with a composed murder mystery that Nora(Angel) tries to excavate as the caravan prospers further.
Special shoutout to Robbie Amell, who is an aroma of fresh energy and spirit. Despite some slow moments, the ensemble cast worked outstandingly together. The chemistry between the leads is impeccable. The character of Nora played by Andy Allo is very competently crafted as she is torn between actuality and VR. Whether you are a fan of sci-fi series or not Upload is definitely a binge-watch for the weekend.
