What I liked

Great actors and great writing! Everyone had depth. Even the characters introduced late in the show felt relevant and were introduced very efficiently. For example, Kia(?) started out solving the issue with the city on the phone call and from then on her presence in the group felt natural and necessary. The involvement of tech and the multiple video cameras was really clever and fluid too. I also liked that women played characters that might have defaulted to men. Great job overall!

What I didn't like

I watched virtually and there were a few sound issues, but it didn’t affect my understanding of what was happening. Sometimes it was hard to hear the actress that was playing the general. But these were minor things.

My overall impression

What a ride! Vice is a dark and witty commentary on the trajectory of our society and our relationship to the virtual world. This show made me think deeply about what is reality and how far should we go to fight for it.
