5 Reasons You Should Be Watching 'Maniac' On Netflix

You need to be watching this series.


"Maniac" is a new limited series out on Netflix, starring Jonah Hill, Emma Stone, Justin Theroux, Sonoya Mizuno, and Sally Field. If the all-star cast isn't enough to get you to watch, here are 5 other important reasons you should dive into this Netflix series:

1. It is totally MIND BENDING.

"Maniac" is completely mind bending — from the AdBuddy driven advertising world the characters live in, to the pharmaceutical trial featured, to the way the main character's brains mesh together. If you like shows like "Westworld" and "Game of Thrones," you'll like "Maniac."

2. Annie and Owen are amazing main characters

Annie is recovering from a personal tragedy and Owen is schizophrenic, and they're each looking to cure their mental issues in this mysterious pharmaceutical trial. They don't know each other at the start, but the way their lives intertwine is WILD.

3. The trippy visuals and story lines.

The opening sequence of Maniac is narrated by one of the doctors and starts you right in on a trippy journey about how life began on earth. Things progress from there, with wild and bright visuals being a cornerstone of this series.

4. Dr. Fujita's bangs and glasses

Yes, Dr. Fujita is super smart, complex and interesting. Her agoraphobia keeps her holed up in the lab most of the time, but she is definitely running the show in this experiment. Her blunt cut bangs, big glasses, and constant chain smoking make her a joy to watch anytime she's on the screen.

5. You can sit back and enjoy the ride!

This series will blow your mind, and at some points, you may not get what is happening. But that's okay! Just sit back and enjoy the ride, and let "Maniac" take you in. If you want a deeper understanding of all of the events, storylines, and easter eggs, I recommend reading the Vulture episode recaps.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.
