Why you should watch
Maniac is one of a kind!
This mini-series has everything: fantastic performances by Emma Stone and Jonah Hill in a surprisingly dramatic role. The phenomenal soundtrack by Dan Romer is the perfect score to a unique look at present-day human connections, loneliness and mental health.
All of this with gorgeous production design and cinematography.
Maniac is a perfect package that's impossible to compare with anything else on the streaming market.
