On Amazon Prime Video (the streaming platform by Amazon Prime, that offers an amazing catalogue, from films, like the documentary Chiara Ferragni Unposted, to tv shows like Making the Cut hosted by the super top model Heidi Klum), is now available to watch Upload. The tv series is set in a dystopic reality, where people can decide between two options, in the short amount of time, right before they’re about to die. The first option is to get cured by traditional medicine and try to survive or, the second option consists in being able to “upload” themselves into a virtual afterlife of their choosing.
Created by the mind of Greg Daniels (The Office), Upload follows the story of Robbie Amell as Nathan, a brilliant app developer that after dying prematurely find himself uploaded into the digital heaven. Here he bonds with Nora, his living customer service rep, or “Angel”, that got her position thanks to her experience while she was alive in customer service.
The sci-fi comedy, spanning for 10 episodes of half an hour each, represent an irreverent journey throughout the possibilities that science could offer us. This futuristic insurance on life and death creates many questions. It intrigues the viewer, makes him laugh but at the same makes him wonder what could happen if this was our reality. A new challenge for Amazon Prime Video, that will keep us wondering for a long time.
