'Upload' season 2 hasn't lost its cool first year wits, although it has lost some of its venom

‘Upload’ season 2 hasn’t lost its cool first year wits, although it has lost some of its venom

All series that start with a successful first season (and One in order to “download” was, even if it’s disguised under easy-going humor and isn’t sarcastic at all) facing a huge challenge in their sophomore year. In this case, the spelling of technology (more specifically, from .) continues Social networks and habits that allow us to spread to more desirable virtual entities of our mundane realist characters), but without neglecting the character development in the first installment.

In fact, that’s what the first year of “Upload” was about beyond just impersonal sarcasm, and frankly, it’s something Greg Daniels has been very good at since his days as the creator of The Office. He showed it in the already classic ‘Parks & Recreation’ or in the very special step – a step below Loading, perhaps, but with an equally delicious character set-“space forceNo matter where your environment is Comedy seriesDaniels is always right about the strange, secondary, emotional contrasts of his heroes and heroines.

But in this case The mixture of mildly anti-tech sarcasm and the characters who experienced it blend particularly well: We started from the fact that a young man who dies in an accident goes so far as not to conform to him, a hypothetical paradise in which he is like a fish out of water. And he falls in love with his “angel”, an employee of the company that supports this social network of mundane life. The countless contradictions that arose from the approach, starting with the fact that he was dead and that she was alive, not only enhanced the comedy, but also gave it a very interesting background.

This second season starts with some of the first episodes which had a hard time maintaining the interesting mode that we saw in season one all along. First of all, Nora the Angel goes completely offline and joins a group of Luddites who live in the countryside without a connection to technology. Our hero is completely helpless because without technology he cannot meet her again.

Less satire, more feelings

Season one is designed as an analysis of our character divisions and behaviors in a series that would have been unimaginable only a few years ago. From star rating real people and the real impact it has to the impossibility of living offline, it’s been through Our daily struggle between who we are and how we want others to see us. All of that, although it obviously belongs to the DNA of the strand, we partly lose it.

for this series Stop looking like ‘The Good Place’, which is a pure existential philosophy from the moment it proposed the rules of conduct and reality and dedicated itself to examining them and searching for the loopholes in them. Loading has stopped caring about the mechanics of his world to exploit, and now wants to tell the stories that take place in that universe.

From this point of view, the story has some ups and downs, such as Nora’s initial visit above to the Luddite camp, which then takes a turn when she returns to a hypothetical existence, or the investigation into the death of the protagonist, suspected of it. Not having an accident, as already noted in the first season. This focus on conspiracies rather than silly gags that put technology to shame is generating fluctuations in interest Because it’s not really original.

With everything, and even though we’re a bit shorter than Season 1, “Lift” is still one of the best satires in virtual life, which is also gaining unexpected reverberations now that we’re all talking nonstop about metaverse, this “loading” to the floor. Plots like those of the awful digital kids hark back to the best gruesome sense of the first year and the cast is still as toned and full of charisma as ever. After all, an essential series for thinking about the unreal and the places that would become our everyday lives.
