Tv Season Info

From Emmy-Award winning writer Greg Daniels (The Office, Parks and Recreation) comes Upload, a new sci-fi comedy series set in a technologically advanced future where hologram phones, 3D food printers and automated grocery stores are the norm. Most uniquely, humans can choose to be "uploaded" into a virtual afterlife when they find themselves near-death. The series follows a young app developer, Nathan Brown (Robbie Amell), who winds up in the hospital following a self-driving car accident, needing to quickly decide his fate. After a rushed deliberation with his shallow girlfriend Ingrid (Allegra Edwards), he chooses to be uploaded to her family's luxurious virtual afterlife, the Horizen company's "Lakeview." Once uploaded in Lakeview, Nathan meets his customer service "Angel" Nora Anthony (Andy Allo), who at first is his charismatic concierge and guide, but quickly becomes his friend and confidante, helping him navigate this new digital extension of life.

I love Upload because it's so smart, so funny and so imaginatively complicated.

What little spark there is, either in friendship or the tiny embers of romance sprinkled throughout, just isn't all that connected to the high concept ideas at its premise.

May 4, 2020 | Rating: C | Full Review…

At least over the first 8 of the 10 Upload episodes, those larger ideas are submerged in mediocre plotting, strained comic antics and a sleep-inducing romance.

Where the show excels is in playing out its premise at length, and in depth.

"Upload" is very much its own thing, and a good thing at that.

April 30, 2020 | Full Review…

The ideas are superficial, the performances are mostly bland, and the plotting is frustrating. Worst of all, it's just not that funny.
