Every episode, as of this posting, has had multiple lens flares. The lens flares usually occur behind an actor during a profound moment or reflection. In films and television shows, lens flares (especially high in the sky, but not exclusively) have traditionally been known to represent "divine presence" or "divine intervention". See more »

User Reviews

People keep missing its point.
12 January 2019 | by messrembSee all my reviews

We are a species with a proud tradition of willful ignorance, so the reviews should not surprise me, even in this day and age, yet they do. Mostly because said ignorance tends to have a volume. I admit that the first episodes were a bit hard to tolerate and they are, most likely, the cause of the mentioned volume, but if one knows little, one should stay silent and not shout reviews. This show has the guts to explore subjects in much need of scrutiny and many of them need a very fine balancing act if the series is to survive as a commercial enterprise. Some episodes are not so great at doing it and tend to offend (me included) but we all need rough incentives to think sometimes. Who are we as a community beyond the labels of nation, religion and color? What drive brings us together and what motivates connection, good deeds, communion beyond the motivations supplied until now mostly by religions? We are slowly growing up and growing out of the ideas that held civilization together until now and we need to find new reasons to connect to each other. Simplified, each episode is basically a case study of how we have been reasoning, crystallized in religious views, and the ever-growing complexity of modern reality. Sure, the show is flawed- the tech parts are laughable, the value of religions is sacrosanct and the need for everything to be painless is painful (!) to watch, but a TV series that keeps asking us "What can God do, that and AI can't?" is too priceless to miss. It seems we need to grow the complexity of our concept of God, too. But we all have the sacred right to choose ignorance: if you don't like this show just watch something else, or get religion. I've surely missed things and offended people but I hope this is brief enough.
