Upload—Pilot (Welcome to Upload)

The job of a pilot is to establish the premise and characters of a show, this pilot did its job beautifully.

The episode kicks off with a video advertisement of Lakeview by Horizen, a luxurious afterlife where a person’s consciousness can be uploaded and they can live their afterlife seemingly as they please. The camera zooms out to reveal the advertisement is being played on a packed subway, with Nora (Andy Allo) sitting next to a woman playing 50 First Dates apparently on her phone which comes out of her hand. This is the first of many hints that the world of this show is set in a not too distant future. We then see Nora get off the packed subway and head to work at Upload client support. We see her head to her desk and welcoming a new client or Upload to their afterlife.
