    Sarin

    So from the last episode these dreams were intertwined between the 2 main characters, the glitch in the AI has fused the 2 head sets together creating hundreds of life time realities for the 2 to experience.

    We main get the point of view from Emma stone who's character is highjacking the dream of a simple highst / security check. The meeting of sirs and mystical people. In the end the final chapter of the text is taken but also returned to the owner.

    The insight we get to Emma stones issues in this only furthers the outstanding drug addiction from the first episodes. 9.2 was the best answer that could have been achieved in the test and the jump between items deals with the home truths of what is inside her head.

    Everything about her little sister is true and that her mum is the cause of many of these problems. We'll need to know more before finding out the other side of the story to ubderstand how these 2 are destinded to be together

    Maniac

    Maniac is a character driven mini-series about two unique personas that decides to go under a scientific experiment and finds themselves bonding and exploring a newer world together. Created by Fukunaga and Sommerville, this sci-fi drama won't let you think that it is merely a series, for its set-pieces, production and art design along with jaw dropping visual effects gives you the apt cinematic experience.

    Along with these rich technical aspects, its comic based background score and stunning cinematography celebrates and justifies this tricky and twisted concept. The narrative is often stretched and too thin, but has gripping and adaptive structure to hold on to and since its premise allows it to jump from one illusion to another, its sub-plots and short stories are enough to attain the satisfying closure in each episodes.

    The zest to tell an honest and uncompromising tale fuels this sometimes emotionally shallow drama into a more raunchy and gut wrenching tale whose credit goes to none other than Fukunaga whose precision is far beyond one's imagination, he can easily surprise you through his sharp insight of the character's perspective. His creative world actually runs on subconscious thoughts and the major strength of his, is to not only fiddling with those characters but also the viewers where the entire frame of the screen along with props and background score that are used competently.

    Stone has emotions on the surface and with her expressive portrayal of a disturbed girl is amazing and on the other hand Hill is more reserved and subtle and addition to that, the supporting cast like Theroux and Field too delivers. The dark humor that runs smoothly which not only draws laugh but can scare you at times, the sweat drop precision of Fukunaga and the metaphorical concept that literally is imputed in each frame, are the high points of the mini-series.

    Exactly Like You

    The detailed work which could have easily been abbreviated usually ought not to work, but this bold venture of the characters thrives on these imaginations full of cheat and tricks that has the potential to elaborate the higher concept into a Layman's term.
