DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 0

Verdict – 4/5

 

Pros –
1) Cassette Futurism – A great entry in this genre.A dystopian future with Russian speaking USA.
2) Sonoya Mizuno as Dr. Azumi Fujita – Best character from the show with a distinctly 80s look.
3) Billy Magnussen as Jed singing “Every Breath You Take” unplugged
4) Multiple anthology stories inside one show. Both lead and supporting characters playing distinct roles from different eras with different personalities.
5) There are only 2 confirmed aspects of this story which are occurring in the real world – The mother-son rivalry and the Milgrim courtroom trial. Rest all can be psychological.

 

Cons –
1) Upbeat climax but mediocre third act.
