Is It Any Good?
What does it mean to be human? Can technology replicate humanity? These are some of the longest-tenured themes in science fiction. What Don't Look Deeper lacks in a fresh take on those questions, it makes up for with an incredible cast and an exciting, kinetic visual aesthetic. Unfortunately the format of seven- to 10-minute episodes gets in the way of things like actual character development and other storytelling tools that could help flesh out an otherwise run-of-the-mill story.
