very promising opening for a new SCI-FI concept
Shockingly good casting on the lead, Shahi, who demonstrates a versatility here that one couldn't have imagined from her time on PoI. The sci-fi choose-your-own-virtual-reality theme is inriguing and the visuals are stunning. There are some unlikable characters, a few predictable plot points, and I already fear an episodic save of the week feel (which I hope the producers/writers can overcome), but I want to see more of other people's dream worlds! Is there drama to this? Sure. But it's incorrectly categorized, though I've tried to add sci-fi to the genre on IMDB. Leaving the main genre out of this show's IMDB page and marketing is an absurd tactical error. Marketing hacks must have gotten stuck in their own reveries, and phoned this in, bc there should be a lot more hype online for this premise and pilot.
