Upload begins with an overwhelming self-assuredness, one that unfortunately starts to wither as familiarity steadily sets in. The show's biggest flaw is that it's trying to be three series, of widely varying quality, all at once.

It's all quite brilliantly imagined and rendered, with a keen eye for the awfulness of gouging corporations -- though it's not as consistently laugh-out-loud funny as some might hope.

It's probably not as good as The Good Place, but it's got plenty of laughs and ideas to make you think.

The intricately realized setting needs a story, however, at which point this fertile if familiar premise begins to suffer.

Mainly, though, Upload is a wickedly funny, well-executed black comedy. Whenever it threatens to get deep and meaningful, another zinger of a gag comes along.

Its commentary about all the ways we’ve allowed corporations’ long tentacles to wrap themselves around our lives (or afterlives) is reminiscent of half of Black Mirror, but that doesn’t make it any less pertinent to our own increasingly dysfunctional world.

It might be “The Good Place,” but less philosophical; or “Forever,” but less in control of its tone; or the “Black Mirror” episode “San Junipero,” but, unfortunately, just not that good.

What it shares with Daniels’ previous shows is what makes it so compelling: despite being a story set in the afterlife tackling themes of capitalism and loss of privacy, Upload is at heart deeply human and deeply funny.
