Beneath the Surface

I won’t give it away in the review. If you like mysterious drama pods, you’ll like this take on it. Well done.
Interesting but basic storyline. Tried to be edgy with some events in the second to last episode but didn’t ring true with the main character’s arc. Last episode was hard to follow because of its structure; tried too hard to wrap everything up instead of focusing just on the main character.
Darkly comic mindscrew
Take The Truman Show and 1984, throw them into a blender, add excellent use of repetition and quick cuts to disorient the listener, a too cheery performance by the lead, darkly comic observations about work, family, and pets and you get this story which slowly pulls you in detail by detail. Really excited to see where this goes.
