    Not sure how to describe this.

    Psychological drug trial results in shared, fractured realities.

    It's based on a 2014 Norwegian show of the same name.

    Looks like it has some potential and I'll watch anything with Emma Stone.

    Cool. A show about how I feel some days.

    Three episodes in and really enjoying it.

    It has that same retro feel I love about Legion.

    Also, Sonoya Mizuno is a superfox.

    So far it's similar to the movie Eternal Sunshine of a Spotlessmind, which I don't mind. It's interesting at certain points but drags too long at times.

    Thanks for the references. I am not a fan of those two movies and now know that this show aint for me.

    Watched it this week. It was excellent. Jonah Hill delivered an excellent depressing, bleak demeanor.

    Really weird stuff.

    I'm almost done and not sure how I feel.

    It's a bit too surreal for me.

    OK, all done.

    I really liked it.

    I think my viewing suffered from mixed expectations, and I will like it a lot more on second viewing.
