“He doesn’t know if what he’s seeing is real or not real, and the audience should have that same experience”. [Noah Hawley]
I mean, have you been reading the news, Mr. Hawley? (Rhetorical …) We’re definitely questioning reality, because the shit our new dictator is pulling cannot be happening, and our representatives (regardless of party) will not allow his machinations to continue, right? RIGHT?
Meanwhile, back in the psychiatric facility where some form of sanity possibly still reigns, diagnosed schizophrenic and mutant extraordinaire, David Haller (Dan Stevens) is on his own journey to find reality which, as explained by the cast and creator/writer, Noah Hawley, is difficult to discern.
If we’re going to live in surreality, it may as well be the fun version (including dancing and singing ) that we watch on the telly.
