>>124302450 Agreed. Everything after Ep. 1 has been such a bait and switch, here I was hoping for a SciFi show that explored the nature of Robot/Human relationships and how we define the rights of artificial intelligence and what I get is a Slice of Life/Comedy/Romance instead.
>>124303773 I thought it was obvious from the getgo that this'd be a show about mortality, letting go and dementia more than anything.
Isla's mind is coming undone at the seams, she can't even manage simple things anymore but can't understand why they're so difficult and she's terrified of dying while constantly faced with the imminent reality of it. The way her character is being handled is really compelling and the more we see of her the more interesting the show gets.
>>124303878 And it'd be great if they actually made use of episode 1s plot device to explore that element more satisfyingly. They have a job that allows them to go door to door and come to grips with the reality of death and since then Ep 1 its been nothing but an afterthought.
Instead what we get is "haha Isla is so incompetent" and jokes about living with a female for half the span of a single episode.
People whining about comedy/SoL don't even understand that episode 3 WAS a part of the setup/plot. Importantly it showed Isla being unwilling to be emotionally connected to those around her. It wasn't just an SoL/comedy episode for fuck's sake. If there's one thing this show does well it's seamlessly merging plot and comedic relief moments.
>>124304758 12 episodes is a bit long if they're going to spell out everything in the very first one and it would just end up in a Nolanesque "let me explain the plot and themes of the movie" monologue. I'm not sure that what they're trying to say deserves an entire show though.
>>124304827 Yeah, the whole bit about her retreating into the "I am a robot" thing to cope with her failing lifespan really sort of struck home to me just how much that reality was affecting her.
Like she's already pretty much severed her ties with those around her to make her passing easier and she's afraid of connecting with MC because it will just make it more difficult to say goodbye while she just runs out the clock.
>>124304874 Personally, Isla was cute at first, but now I feel her autism is getting annoying. It's still good but the first episode had such an impact. It feels strange how they showcase her degrading ability as comedy despite it being the driving force behind the drama.
>>124306483 The comedy was half funny for once, instead of flopping immediately. And the atmosphere was actually darker and we had some character development so it was a nice episode compared to the former.
But it still needs to be more convincing.
