People are still trying to process Netflix’s ‘Maniac’
People are saying that Netflix’s new show Maniac is like a crazy amazing mash-up of Mr. Robot and Westworld
Netflix recently released the 10-episode series Maniac, which features both a thinner Jonah Hill and an always-amazing Emma Stone. Critics from both Variety and New Yorker seem to love the series and people on Twitter are quite blown away, to say the least.
Watching Maniac. Weirdest goddam show I think I’ve ever watched and I’m only 2 eps in. I can’t tell what year it is. I don’t know who or what is real. I’m just getting mind fucked by Jonah and Emma— KFC (@KFCBarstool) September 22, 2018
Maniac on Netflix is Art.— Tara Ansley (@TaraAnsley) September 23, 2018
It’s like Mr. Robot, W. Anderson, Soylent Green, 5th Element, Bladerunner, Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind, & Matrix all had a baby that suffered from schizophrenia. Then that baby stuck it’s finger in an outlet. That’s Maniac and it’s gorgerous.
The series features Annie Landsberg (Emma Stone) and Owen Milgrim (Jonah Hill) who meet at the late stages of a mysterious pharmaceutical trial where things ultimately go haywire.
