Trivia

In episode 5 Audrey gets a phone call from Greg. The ringtone from the cell phone is oddly reminiscent of the theme music from the film American Beauty. Which was also written by Here and Now's creator/producer Alan Ball. See more »

Intriguing, imaginative. Just enough weirdness to warrant anticipation.
13 February 2018 | by beanu-62229See all my reviews

I rewatched the first episode after a slightly distracted initial watch. It's a dense story, with several familiar plotlines somehow twisted in the proper way. I saw a review about it being "leftists". That is missing the boat entirely. There is certainly a political thread, how can there not be in this day & age, but there is a self-deprecating view of the progressive ideals. One that doesn't negate but simply shows depth. Underneath all of this lye a mystery that intrigues and promises some surprise.
