Nathan related Nora in a way that he couldn’t with his girlfriend Ingrid. Nora and Nathan develop a bond. It breaks Nora’s heart that they don’t have a real chance if Nathan were alive.
Pure comic and Joyful moments
The show has a strong comical approach that can dilute the gravity of moments with funny dialogues. Dylan an eleven-year-old, who was uploaded after he fell into the Grand Canyon, gives Nathan a pep talk. There is a talking dog and weird neighbours. Nathan enjoys this more than he thought he would and he likes it far better than in his previous life.
There is a murder mystery!
Apart from the fact that the show is full of moments of innocent, silly and pure joys, it is confirmed that Nathan’s car was tampered with which means there was a clear attempt of murder. Delving further, there seems to be a connection between Nathan’s last incomplete project “Beyond” and his death.
In addition, there has been a murder attempt on Nora as well.
Upload Season 2
Season 2 has a lot of questions that need answers. First, someone killed Nathan. Who was that? Nora found out someone corrupted some of Nathan’s memory–files. The identity of that person is still a secret. In season 1 Nora confesses her feelings for Nathan and as Fate would have it, at that very moment data runs out and his consciousness is frozen. A few moments later, he is recharged with new data by Ingrid who reveals that she has been uploaded too. With this super twisted finale, season 2 has a lot of catching up.to do. It seems like the Nora-Nathan ship will face more difficulty.
