If you loved 'The Office' then you'll certainly enjoy the new sci-fi series 'Upload' on Amazon Prime.

As an online undergraduate student, I tend to complete my tasks early and submit far before the deadline, giving me more time to relax. With all my tasks and assignments finished and submitted, I decided to check out Amazon’s newest original series "Upload," from the creator of "The Office" Greg Daniels, that aired May 1. 

"Upload" is a fun and entertaining new sci-fi show that takes you into the year 2033. Humans are able to choose their own afterlife and decide if they want to "upload" themselves into a virtual luxurious afterlife. The show focuses on Nathan, a 27-year old who gets in a car accident with his self-driving car and ultimately needs to decide if uploading is what he wants to do.

Spoiler Alert! He ends up uploading himself.

Nathan then meets Nora, his customer service "angel" who’ll assist him when he’s in the virtual afterlife. As his life in this new virtual world, specifically called Lakeview, gets adjusted and goes through a few twists and turns, Nathan and Nora seem to have a budding new romance that leaves the viewers rooting for the two. 

As I started watching the show, I couldn’t stop -- I completed season one in less than one day! The show is filled with not so much "laugh out loud" humor but rather a continuous chuckle, and relatable characters that you fall in love with, along with those darn cliffhangers at the end of every episode. It really has a great storyline and the characters are well-written; it really allows you to immerse yourself while forgetting about the Coronavirus situation.

"Upload" has recently been renewed for a second season. I’m sure I’ll binge-watch this season as well when it comes out!
