Haven't read the thread for fear of spoilers. I'm about 6 eps in. Maybe it's answered but what's up with the old computers? (Please don't answer.) For a classic computer nerd, there's a lot of eye candy. An Osborne I, dot matrix printers, and the like. *fap* *fap* *fap* *fap* *fap*

Finished Maniac. No clue what kind of universe this is set in. Is it all a schizophrenic delusion? It's kind of our world/technology with some futuristic technology and a bunch of old computer hardware. Statue of Extra Liberties? Ad Buddy?

I clicked to watch by mistake and stayed for episode 2. Now I have to watch the rest.
From episode 1 opening the doctor spoke of alternate possibilities. As soon as I saw the Extra Liberty i thought it was a different universe. Tech seems to be 70s but out of control from modern reality.

Jona Hill actually doing some good serious acting.
