Unless you're rich enough so that your investments return enough interest to pay for Lakeview (+ amenities), it seems like everyone's going to run out of money since uploads aren't allowed to work.
Also, if people's fortunes are going towards their "afterlife", then that would cause vast upheavals in society regarding inherited money.
So much this! I binged the last half of the series this weekend and at the end I just went "Come on!!! Are you kidding me?". I felt like Amazon just got me hooked and then yanked it away.
Glad it got renewed, now I have a reason to continue.
The whole just one download copy does seem a bit contrived. As well as downloads choosing to be old in their digital afterlife or even black and white? It's already been shown that they can edit avatars so making someone young should be trivial.
Sadly, I can certainly believe that it would get monetized so the poor will continue to get screwed even in a digital world where everything is basically "free" to simulate.
Yup! "Heaven" is very expensive!
So, is Nathan REALLY the bad guy? He just wanted the money? Who killed him? His business partner? Ingrid was messing with the car to set it to "protect occupant" mode? She's not in on his death? She uploaded to join him!! Kinda confused here on what I am supposed to think. I was thinking that that little "icon" he had to be able to "hack in" would somehow let him not use up his 2 GB.. But no.
Pretty much everybody in the show turned out to be more complicated than they seemed early on...
Can you say C L I F F H A N G E R? They threw a lot at the wall at the end; something will stick and start to sort it out next season.
My impression was that Ingrid's father killed him. Nathan sold his idea to the father, but the father didn't want to pay him. Ingrid saved Nathan against her father's wishes.
My theory: we didn't see the end of the conversation between Nathan and Ingrid's father. After Nathan says "It would have to be a significant amount of money", both Nora and Nathan stopped watching the memory. I bet he then says something like "because I can't imagine any amount that would make me betray my partner". And Ingrid's dad had him killed.
(why Nathan wouldn't proceed past that part in his own memory I have no idea, but that's all I got)
Enjoyed it. I think the bad guy memory is faked so he wouldn’t pursue it.
Darn this virus! It may be a while before S2 is filmed. Maybe they can augment with CGI/animation and release earlier.
I just watched the final episode of Blacklist and it was about half real video and half that weird animation thing. I wouldn't want to watch a whole episode with the animation.
I agree upload was very entertaining.
All of Season 2 is Lakeview running on Horizen's backup servers.
(Actually, I don't "like" that at all, but... )
I wonder if Ingrid basically got killed by her father as well and uploaded, maybe he implanted memories to make her think it was to be with Nathan?
It seems to me that there's a world of difference between suppressing/corrupting memories (as was done with Nathan) and making up totally new memories.
If the bad guys had the ability to implant false memories, then why did they leave Nathan with those obvious gaps?
[QUOTE="Beryl, post: 12050900, member: 223641"I think the bad guy memory is faked so he wouldn’t pursue it.[/QUOTE]Are you talking about the memory where Nathan agrees to sell his source code to Ingrid's father? Nathan didn't even have that memory---it was restored either by Nora or by being awake during the patch (I can't remember which----maybe someone's been messing with my memory!)
I like the actress who plays Nora.
Also, the guy who tried to kill Nora was really sloppy. He didn't even have a weapon until he took her kitchen knife?
quit after 4 episodes. good first episode and went downhill each week
YMMV but, although I was not 100% in after the pilot or even after the first 2-3, I felt it got better toward the end of the 1st season and I'm definitely looking forward to S2.
It's not P&R but, to be fair, neither was P&R in S1.
I binged the whole thing yesterday. E1 didn't really grab me, but after E2 I was hooked.
I saw it listed as a comedy, maybe on YouTube, but I'd call it a drama with some humor.
When the bomb went off and their digital images changed to 8 bit, I thought that was hilarious.
Nora is really cute. Unexpected that IRL she used to play in Prince's band.
Gonna be a long wait for S2 I'd guess. See you all in 2022!
