    Time wasting Series...

    Starts out with an interesting premise. Slowly devolves into a train wreck. Unwatchable by the penultimate episode. Jonah Hill playing a gangster defies credibility.

    Great acting and creative visuals. Could have been written better with more meaning instead of just weirdness and with a sharper direction.

    If you like shows that demand your attention, surprise you, and keep you guessing - but never use your attention, curiosity, or intelligence in a cheap, manipulative, or cliched way - then Maniac might make you very happy. It's dark, funny, and at times emotional. There were a few times when I had to rewind to understand what Owen was saying (he mumbles a bit), and the accents some of their alter egos used sometimes took a minute or two to get used to, but those were minor weaknesses. Great show. Satisfying and believable conclusion.

    Visually compelling yes, but often weird just for the sake of it! Love Jonah Hill and Emma Stone, all the way from their Superbad days, but lost interest throughout the mid-part of this series.

    This limited series is a masterpiece if I've ever seen one.

    The casting is spot on for this bizarre, kitschy, existential sci-fi romp. Despite the atypical premise (or perhaps as a result of it) and the soft sci-fi (more like fantasy masquerading as sci-fi) leading us into shared mindscapes and a wide variety of unusual milieus, it all manages to feel grounded and sane within its own maelstrom. It's heartfelt without being cloying and it's sentimental without telling you how to feel. It tackles good and evil, right and wrong, issues of mental health, addiction, and human connection -- all without ever thumping us over the head. The characters are simply real to us, in no small part due to the fantastic work of Jonah Hill, Emma Stone, and really the whole of the cast. Highly recommended.

    Absolutely blown away by this mini-series and can't say enough. It was the perfect mixture of trippy psychological thriller/drama, quirky and hilarious at the right times, and an outstanding cast who bring the emotional depth you only wish you could see in many other films/series. The trailer was an underwhelming representation of the true substance of this series but that may be for the best (whether intentional or not) as it left much of the greatest plot lines to be discovered, which in my opinion was the best way to watch the series; with an open and curious mind. This series has a solid plot with moral substance, but manages to take you on an unpredictable ride with little twists and turns along the way and makes for an awesome journey. The only downside is not being able to take the ride over and over again. That being said, I really hope they expand this in some way...

    Weird, hilarious little sci-fi fantasy gem.
