What a dumb person's idea of a smart show is.

Garbage, absolute garbage. The ending makes no sense at all whatsoever. It's painfully obvious that this show is Netflix letting Brit do whatever she wants in the indie garbage sphere. But she's lost her way, she's not concerned whatsoever with the viewer's enjoyment, as much as she is her 'own vision'. The ending is pretentious and misplaced, and an absolute directorial failure from every angle. Welcome to a questionable ending (to be continued, give me funding for season two) to a very333 drawn out plot line that hardly makes sense at times. Feel good in the fact if you watch this series and go 'what the hell was that', you're in the top 10%. Because there are a lot of dumb people who think this is a good show, without giving it a second glance.
