At what point does this dogshit boring ass show get good? Literally everyone raves about how good it is. It has a NINETY-SEVEN PER-CENT ON ROTTEN TOMATOES. Yet it's boring as FRICK to me. I'm about 25 minutes into episode one.

    Okay, I just learned why the show is called "Severance." Something about worklife and homelife having different memories. How the frick did they make a 9-10 episode show based on this weird premise?

      What was this called in the show? It's been like 1+ years since I watched this. There's a specific name for this dance thingy they do

        Dance Party was a reward perk for high productivity results with the job, but other than that I don't know if it was anything special.

        I haven't watched the show, but let me guess. The show is about office workers who work their seemingly mundane jobs and follow mundane routines, but there's a creeping atmosphere and small reveals that hint that something is wrong. The corporation is probably secretly evil or something. Insert commentary about capitalist alienation or future being a corporate ruled dystopia or something like that.

        >The show is about office workers who work their seemingly mundane jobs and follow mundane routines,
        Complete miss; the first episode almost immediately introduces the strange phenomena that shows why it is not a usual mundane job. But everyone involved with it has or had their own reasons to participate and be there voluntary there is a mix of motives due to the phenomena that each character interacts with differently. The outside world, while they don't know exactly what it entails is aware of it being a special circumstance that is unique and accept it.
        >but there's a creeping atmosphere and small reveals that hint that something is wrong. The corporation is probably secretly evil or something.
        Yeah somewhat but the nature of the conflicts are more individual existential and identity based, while there is some general "evil corporation bad" theme it isn't quite the broadstroke you posit.

        I get criticisms for it, I thought they handled Arquette's character horribly, and the season 1 finale was lame, and the whole series does seem to be mystery box bait that will not pay out. The severed scenes and the aesthetics at the workplace are interesting and entertaining though.

    I like all sorts of critically acclaimed shows. I've watched (and loved) Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Sopranos, The Wire, Carnivale, Rome, Deadwood, Shogun, Fallout, etc. There hasn't been a single critically acclaimed show I've disliked, because probably in part the critical acclaim adds "taste" to the show. But I'm seeing no redeeming qualities to this show other than some mild hints at "work = bad," which isn't anywhere close to being able to carry a show for a full season. There's about ten minutes left of episode one, and there is NO "catch," nothing to keep me coming for more, other than MAYBE the critical acclaim.

    I bailed on it when it was obvious there were zero stakes. The main characters constantly break the 'rules' and frick all happens other than the c**ty blonde says they can't do that stuff or there will be consequences. I'm convinced the only people who defend it are the idiots who didn't bail and now they try and convince others to waste their time on it as well. That's why nobody ever says WHY it's good.

      kinda yes but also no
      world is just like our world but the people that work at this specific company go through "severence" where it's your body but it's not your consciousness

      you go to work and bam 8 hours later it's like you instantly skipped all that time and you go back to your life

      when they're working they are like a different person that doesn't know about their real life and the real life people don't know shit about what happens at the job

      these people choose to go to this job they aren't forced to go

      I don't want to spoil shit for you about the people that work there but yes evil corporation secrets stuff that Cinemaphile gets so mad at

      I expected something like that, but it's not that at all.
      It's made clear from the very start that this "workplace" is highly exceptional and would be unacceptable to society if exposed. The wagies signed up for a top secret job where their in-office selves are made unaware of the outside world, hence cannot leak secret information to the outside world.
      The purpose of the mundane tasks they perform are never explained to them, and all they know is a non-stop cycle of 9-5, not knowing where their true identity lives or sleeps. So the in-office personas are in a runaway existential crisis, struggling for answers to their purgatory existence.

    It doesn't. The whole show is built around that premise, which is really good - but the writers didn't know what to do with it.
    Some interesting shit happens in the final episode but then it ends of a cliffhanger, and there's no guarantee it will ever pay off.

    the plotter of this show is a israeli lesbian.
    her secret fantasy, writing Arcane, was to gaslight interracial porn into it. luckily, she faced opposition, and lamentably failed at it.

      The lesbian lady from your picture was the main writer behind Arcane and she's an executive or something for Severance as well. The only reason I've seen the show in OP was because I've tried to look what else she did as I think her writing in Arcane is decent and it's not her fault they did the show dirty with moronic fighting scenes that are dumb and unrealistic. First fight of Vi was very good for some reason but it's diluted in a sea of shit.
