Behind the Reviews – Edition #31 (Upload)

Upload is the first TV series I’ve reviewed that was made for a streaming service, Amazon Prime Video, as opposed to airing on free-to-air television.

Upload premiered on 1 May 2020 and focuses on Nathan Brown, a computer programmer who dies prematurely and is uploaded to a premium virtual afterlife that his girlfriend, Ingrid, pays for. The show’s premise as a whole is set in 2033 and focuses on the fact that humans can upload themselves into a virtual afterlife of their choosing.

The pilot established the show’s premise, setting and characters beautifully. Nathan was revealed to have been in the process of designing a free virtual afterlife with his best friend and business partner, Jamie. Nathan is uploaded after having a car accident and at Ingrid’s insistence.
