What was the whole point? I assumed that because this film was based on a book by Philip K. Dick and won the 1963 Hugo award for Best Novel, that it would have a trippy twist at the end or something interesting to reveal about these films. But like UNDER THE DOME there was NOTHING. No explanation - just a story of people trying to do what I don't know.
I am incensed now that I hear that there will be a SECOND season of this show which will only further muddy the waters I am sure. They will not get me a second time, however. I once again feel tricked. Like Season Two of True Detective, none of this effort amounts to anything with a POINT to it all.
And that ending, where one of our characters suddenly finds himself in the 1950s America we all recognize came TOTALLY out of left field and is only there to drag any stupid suckers back for Season Two.
This was Amazon's first foray into the original programming arena currently dominated by the cable giants and now Netflix. I would call it an ambitious failure like most everything I have watched this year like The Expanse.
I can't recommend this one to anyone, even those who have read the book because I understand that the book diverges greatly from the TV program. It's not worth your time because the pay back for your effort is not rewarded.
