Wonderful new show
The main character Mara, a former hostage negotiator, takes people out of the dream like settings of their computer simulations they get trapped in. This is a densely psychological thriller, with surprising implications. While there is little physical action, the psychological and mental anguish is compelling. There usually is a motivation in the real world that pushes what action there is.
Warning: there is a hook, still undiscovered, something in Mara's background which will eventually lead to her own personal issues coming out. So far only hints of it and probably related to her history in police work.
This could turn into some rather mushy gooey mess if it wasn't being rooted in proper and carefully constructed mental imagery. This is a gem of a show and I hope it lasts a long time.
