Upload

This show about a world where the dying upload their consciousness into a virtual reality was a pleasant surprise.  It’s funny without being stupid, bitingly satirical but cutting with baby teeth, and occasionally serious without hitting you over the head with whatever point they are trying to make.  This was apparently adapted from a Phillip K. Dick story, but it’s not as dystopian as his work usually is.  The two main characters are very appealing, and the villains are more ridiculous than evil.

One season, on Amazon Prime.  A second season has already been ordered.
