What an amazing Limited Series
23 September 2018 | by killertofu1See all my reviews

What an amazing limited series by Netflix. I think Jonah Hills performance was one of his best. I enjoyed the whole vibe this series was giving. Some futuristic retroness really amplifies it all. I totally binged all 10 episodes today and am so bummed that it's over. Absolutely fantastic
