A futuristic dramedy that explores grief and domestic issues through a dreamlike ideology with the lead character Jack.

We review the Apple TV+ series Hello Tomorrow! Season 1, which does not contain spoilers.

It always takes one inspirational man with charisma to sell absolutely anything, and in Hello Tomorrow!, Jack is the one man who sells a dream. It’s easy to sell people a dream about a particular lifestyle. Jack sells homes in Vistaville and tries to make his customers as happy as he can; meanwhile, his life isn’t the greatest. Sometimes living a dream outside of your reality is more straightforward than facing the hardships that they go through. That’s why Jack wants to live a better tomorrow and keeps promising a better tomorrow.

Within the first episode, we see that Jack can’t deal with his family issues, and we know how that progresses throughout the first three episodes. It can be taken as a form of trauma if you can’t healthily handle grief, and that’s what this explores while creating a dreamlike futuristic world where everything goes according to plan.

Is Hello Tomorrow! Season 1 worth watching?

The reason why Hellow Tomorrow! works well is because of the genre they chose and this human story to go along with selling a concept. Sci-fi and Fantasy touch upon complex issues while sugarcoating a different life that’s out of our reality. The production design has a futuristic architecture that also resembles the 60s at the same time. And the idea of perfection is the reason for this particular styling choice, which also goes with the costume design and hairstyling.

The 60s appeared clean-cut and polished, and the nuclear family was ideal. However, that wasn’t the case once you got into the familial aspects and how everyone has secrets. To use this combination in the future makes perfect sense with the life Jack wants to lead in his version of reality.

Creators Amit Bhalla and Lucas Jansen came up with a unique concept that explores life’s hardships and how people would rather escape than live day-to-day with no regrets. It’s difficult for people to place five years ahead because life can change quickly. This series is a reminder to live in the moment and push forward to the next day, no matter how hard life gets.
