Not for everyone... but I loved it.
15 September 2018 | by ryankolbySee all my reviews

This is definitely not everyone's cup of tea. In order to understand this fully you have to be an appreciative existentialist. I read a few critic reviews remark that the theme is centered around relationships and marriage but I think you can read much more into it than that. It's about the big essential choices we have in life and perhaps after. Do we choose to accept what is around us for the sake of comfort and security? Or do we sacrifice security in search for deeper meaning... for more? How far are we willing to go to see what's beyond the horizon? Would you take from another? Would you leave behind something or someone you treasure? One moral I could concisely derive from this series is that every time you make a choice to be brave your life will change and even if it seems like the result might be for the worse at first it will always move you forward. It seems like it could take many turns if the series moves forward. Will it become about good v evil like Dante's inferno? We are talking about the after life here and I love the ominous appearance of "the traveler" (Peter Weller.) Or will it veer more to the full circle type journey like that of The Odyssey or The Alchemist. It might go over many peoples heads but I loved this series. I could go on and on discussing the thought provoking themes throughout the series and I thought it was beautiful executed by Maya Rudolf as well as Fred Armisen. I also love that while the story is cohesive, each episode has its own moral and thematic questions and everything is tied together so nicely that, while I would love to see where they might take it, the season altogether stands on its own.
