One of the wildest and most unique of Netflix’s bloated slate of original series, Maniac is twisting and twisted genre-defying sci-fi with touches of dark comedy that stands somewhere between Philip K. Dick and The Wachowskis. Stars Emma Stone and Jonah Hill dazzle with identity-shifting roles that change from week to week, just as the show continues to keep you guessing.
Two strangers are drawn to a mysterious pharmaceutical trial that will, they're assured, with no complications or side-effects whatsoever, solve all of their problems, permanently. Things do not go as planned.
An ambitious, enthralling and brilliant series, Maniac's hypnotic allure will trap you under its spell, burrowing deep into your consciousness, and it will not let go until the end credits roll on its 10th and final episode.
