[ # ] Upload is the best new show of the summer!
May 2nd, 2020 under Amazon Prime, Italia Ricci and Robbie Amell, Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest


When I saw the poster for Upload, I had extremely low expectations for it. By the end of the first episode, I was obsessed with the show. I wound up binging the whole first season of the Amazon Prime Sci-Fi series in less than half a day. I couldn’t get enough of it.

Upload is a Sci-Fi series because it is based in the future. Normally, that is turn off for me, but the idea is so original, I overlooked it. Mostly because even though it is happening in the future, they make it feel as though it take place in our current time.

What is this addicting show about? Nathan Brown (Robbie Amell) is a wheeler and dealer type of guy. He is young, a thriving businessman who has the perfect girlfriend. What could go wrong? His driverless car crashes into the back of a truck.

Thankfully, it didn’t kill him, but he is going to have to make a decision. He can either choose a surgery he might not make it out of or be uploaded into a world where the dead can still communicate with the living. Now, you get the Sci-Fi aspect of it.

Ingrid (Allegra Edwards), his girlfriend convinces him to upload himself so that they can be together forever. At first, he is hesitant, but eventually, he decides to do it.

Once he wakes up in his new life or death, he is greeted by his Angel, Nora (Andy Allo). Angels work for Herizon, and they assist the dead with their new lives. They are also there to sell them their products because maintaining their existence is not cheap.

Even though Angels are supposed to be neutral to their clients, Nora develops feelings for Nathan. Which is not that hard to do because he is good looking and charming. However, he has a girlfriend, and she is going to buy a sex suit so that they can still have sex. How can Nora compete with that?

It is not only a love triangle story. We also suspect that Nathan’s car accident was not an accident. Nora is going to do all she can to find if Nathan was murdered.

While she is doing that Nathan is going to make friends at Lakeview like Luke (Kevin Bigley). The two of them will explore the area together, and get into a lot of trouble.

Luke is a troublemaker, and he is good at cheating the system. However, his Angel, Aleesha (Zainab Johnson), is going to bust him as much as she can. When she is not busting him, she is helping Nora not get caught fraternizing with Nathan.

In each episode, we are navigated through this fake world the producers created for the living dead. A world that we all want to live in. As long as we are not in the 2G part of it. That will make sense when you watch it.

I am trying not to tell you too much because there are so many little nuances you need to see, like Nathan going to his own funeral in the third episode. Imagine how awkward that would be?

Upload definitely changes the way you will see Robbie Amell. He has gone from an actor who is big in the teen market to the one for all ages. He proves he is a leading man and Hollywood needs to keep an eye for him.

He is not the only one. Everyone in the cast steps up to the challenge. Telling us a story that is exciting, intriguing, and causes you to want more. Just when you think they cannot surprise you anymore, they find a way to do it again.

You can tell that everyone had a lot of fun making this show. The writers get to see their wildest dreams come true with their ideas that are turned into a reality. While the actors get to play in the fake world, the writers and creator Greg Daniels (The Office, Parks, and Recreation) have created. Then there is us, the viewer, who gets to enjoy the final product.

Let’s be honest, we have streamed everything, and we desperately need something new, enjoyable, and original to watch. That is exactly what Upload is. I love it so much; I think I am going to stream it again just to see some of the things I might have missed the first time. Plus, it is so good, it needs more than one viewing. Therefore, get your first one in now. I promise you will love it as much as I do.

There is all this buzz about the other streaming networks, but Amazon Prime has been putting out the best series, There is The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Boys, Hunters and this. I swear they get me to love things I hate like comic book shows, Nazis and Al Pacino, and futuristic dramas. In my book, that is something really special.
