When David is in session with Dr. Kissinger, he tells Dr. Kissinger he tied a cord and hung himself. Dr. Kissinger tells David no cord was found which confuses David. David's personalities were trying to stop him from killing himself and it can easily be explained that one of his personalities took over and disposed of the cord. See more »

Ambitious with a certain style
9 April 2018 | by siegal-jonathanSee all my reviews

It's difficult for me to find flaw with a show like this. There's so much work put into the music, editing, composition, and writing. It is absolutely just nitpicking for me to say I'd much prefer a more realistic style of acting or characters, something more akin to Logan, but that's my personal taste and I don't think that should detract from the series. It seems to be much more of a comic book style from the first episode with cariacatures of people rather than something relatable, but that's fine. I'm looking forward to the next episode, and that's a bigger success than most television can do with the pilot of their creations.
