Critic Reviews for Upload Season 1

All Critics (56) | Top Critics (22)

I love Upload because it's so smart, so funny and so imaginatively complicated.

May 4, 2020 | Full Review…

What little spark there is, either in friendship or the tiny embers of romance sprinkled throughout, just isn't all that connected to the high concept ideas at its premise.

May 4, 2020 | Rating: C | Full Review…

At least over the first 8 of the 10 Upload episodes, those larger ideas are submerged in mediocre plotting, strained comic antics and a sleep-inducing romance.

May 1, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Where the show excels is in playing out its premise at length, and in depth.

May 1, 2020 | Full Review…

"Upload" is very much its own thing, and a good thing at that.

Apr 30, 2020 | Full Review…

The ideas are superficial, the performances are mostly bland, and the plotting is frustrating. Worst of all, it's just not that funny.

Apr 30, 2020 | Full Review…

At times, Upload drags, and you wish its vibe were a bit punchier and more absurd. However, this show is concerned with having a heart, and it's hard to find fault with that.

Feb 28, 2021 | Full Review…

The people of 'Upload' are technologically advanced enough to transfer a person's conscience into an online world. Their memories and personalities are uploaded into a body where they are able to live for as long as they choose.

Jul 4, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Upload is much more than a joke about the bleak future of humanity and technology's grip on society. It is also a commentary about what people are willing to accept before they are forced to make a change.

Jun 26, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…

The charm never really wears off, because the show plays out like a hybrid of parodying the future while simultaneously marvelling at it...

Jun 24, 2020 | Full Review…

Plot aside, what keeps Upload delightful is its quick wit and ability to surprise.

May 29, 2020 | Full Review…

Amazon Video's Upload is funny, creative, and even complicated at times. A love-story and a murder mystery rolled into one, what more could you want?

Audience Reviews for Upload: Season 1

  • May 11, 2021
    It was amazing! By far my favorite show this year 2021. Really hope there will be a second season.
  • May 05, 2021
    I'm super impressed by the detailed, thoughtful world building. They've thought of everything and it's all so creative and believable. (With the one exception, imo, being how one accesses the screen of their comm devices.) It's as if Black Mirror were reimagined as a feel good comedy. It's been seriously laugh out loud funny at moments, I'm digging the main romance, the special effects are high quality, and the casting is delightful. (Loved Creed's cameo.) Plus, it raises some thought provoking questions about immortality, doing something just because we can, and what it means to live. I'm trying to take my time with it but really just want to devour it in one sitting. Hoping they'll do a second season!

    Did not expect to get hooked and now we can't wait for season 2 !
  • Feb 23, 2021
    great writing and perfect casting. Wasn't surprised that Greg Daniels was behind this one, the man just writes gold. It's pretty great.
  • Feb 02, 2021
    Me encanta la temática de esta serie. Espero ansioso la segunda temporada.
  • Jan 22, 2021
    I think the sex scenes and dropping the F bomb so much made it less amazing. I love the story and the concept, but the humping and vulgarity made me cringe. But to be far, I am on episode 2.
  • Jan 20, 2021
    Funny and lighthearted, this show is fantastically interesting and overall amazing.
  • Jan 04, 2021

  • Jan 02, 2021
