Quote

Upload is set in a future where humans are able to 'upload' themselves into their preferred choice of afterlife. When Nathan (Amell) meets his early death, he is greeted by Nora (Allo) in his version of heaven. The series follows the two as Nathan grows accustomed to life away from his loved ones, and the alive Nora struggles to stay afloat working her job alongside Nathan in the afterlife.

Was about to start a thread on this show and was surprised there was this one from 2018(!). I'm really enjoying it, basic premise is heaven if it was run by EE or Vodafone. There'll be inevitable comparisons to The Good Place, but this leans a bit darker and more satirical.

Yeah, we've been watching it. It's a bit by-the-numbers, but it's entertaining and I want to see how it finishes. There's some properly terrible product placement in it, though.

I’m about half way through this and I’m enjoying it immensely. I suspect if it was on Netflix it would be getting more coverage but like most things on Amazon,  they have done a terrible job of promoting it. 
 

The product placement is always part of the joke, often at the expense of the brand.  I particularly liked the Lean Cuisine testing area for the 2 giggers.

I watched this all in a couple of days and really enjoyed it. I did feel like the last 2 episodes or so were a good bit weaker, but some really good ideas as a whole. 

 

I do fear that this could keep going and going and become a bit of a bore, but for now it's likable, enjoyable and good not too heavy entertainment.
