I'm reminded of the Meta-TV-Show within the Seinfeld show, and when the TV exec asks "Why would anyone watch this?" and George says "Because its on TV."

Reverie is not a bad show, but in the days of West World, Black Mirror, Kiss Me First and numerous other over the top sci-fi shows, Reverie is kind of a throw-back to the 80s or 90s at best. Even though its couched in the guise of a virtual reality show, there is zero technology involved. Its not really a sci-fi show at all.

There is a huge plot hole that can not be forgotten: if people were getting lost in virtual reality and dying, the company would go out of business in a day since no one would use the technology. Its based on a false premise and that ruins the entire show.

The woman's own rather screwed up psychology is a trend in shows these days, since apparantly normal people can't solve problems and you have to be F'd in the head in some way to have genius insights. This is nonsense and contrived and it comes through that way in so many shows including this one. Screwed up people remain screwed up and often only make situations worse for those around them. There is no redemtion. This is psuedo-christian crap psychology.

To further denigrate the show, it actually reminds me of the Love Boat from the 1970s and 80s, each week someone sets sail but has some life issue that only the Love Boat crew can solve and make right again...

The LOOOOVE BOOOAT soon will be making another run....

The LOOOOVE BOOOOAT promises something for everyone...

promising idea but the way it is produced... not a good result, kind of boring
after 3 episodes, the storyline runs in circle even though there's a glimpse of another plot about the main protagonist
