What I liked

I liked the second part of the show.
I like Janette (Alicia Luoma) the best up until the moment she gets convinced to stay in Life Plan, even when the nefarious scheme is revealed. Also Harvard (Jonathan Randall Brooks is maliciously likable) ends up taking over the presentation and convince us all why Life Plan would make sense in a collapsing world in 2068.

What I didn't like

The presentation takes too long to take shape. I like to read between the lines but it came to a point where I wondered how long before the big revelation. Even then I wondered “is this it?” and “how does the corporation benefit from people going into Life Plan?”.
I have questions, which is not always a bad thing, it just means the rabbit hole goes much deeper than the show explores.

My overall impression

Life Plan feels as if you’re part of an infomercial where the host and his guests turn the tables on the audience.
I love the look of the stage with the PowerPoint presentation that shows you the life you could live if you joined Life Plan. It looks aesthetically pleasing to the eye, just like those commercials you end up watching for no particular reason and you end up buying the product.
