Upload Season 2: Hilarious, Anti-Captilatistic, Important and Promising
Releasing during the brink of the pandemic consuming the world, Upload Season 1 was an instant hit for being so light in tackling deep and salient topics. In season two, the show does the same. We see Upload Season 2 opening from that cliffhanger moment in season one, no passage of time or aftermath has been executed in the two-year gap.
Our beloved Nathan’s ex, Ingrid has now uploaded herself to the digital afterlife at Lakeview after rescuing Nathan from the Two Gig purgatory that lies underneath the posh afterlife resort. After the revelations in season 1, audiences know that Ingrid’s intentions are tainted and, her motive to upload herself is to salvage her relationship with Nathan this time. As for Nora, our angel who went off-grid last season is back too, giving rise to a dynamic situation.
However, Nora is back not only with a partner but also, the knowledge of the conspiracy plan to overthrow Horizen and the other important conglomerates that aim to keep the digital afterlife behind a particular paywall. With the rising romantic tension between Nathan and Nora and, the plan to destroy the capitalistic world, Upload Season 2 aims high and heavy with its hilarious premise.
Just like its predecessor, Upload Season 2 does not shy away from reality and the potential future. The show gives a brilliant and powerful commentary on the future of humankind being run by technology and, how the latter will be the supreme really soon. But, it never stops making you laugh as it educates you. It never bores you with serious topics but endearingly puts in Nathan and Nora’s romantic trope. And above all, it remains relevant and never derails from the message it is trying to represent.
The cast is absolutely brilliant, yet again. In fact, it was saucy to see Allegra Edwards get a good amount of screentime that made us all despise her more along with Josh Banday. Of course, Robbie Amell and Andy Allo are as charming as ever.
