Yeah I thought the first episode was a somewhat novel take on autonomous cars (I hadn't really thought about the "pedestrians can freely wander in front of them" angle), but I dunno why he had to say Waymo a million times and talk about how much he loves Waymo. Would have been just as good if it was just "unnamed autonomous car."He also glossed over the problems with the tech pretty quickly to get to his pedestrian utopia point.
I mean it seems like it was basically an ad for Waymo, which I think it was, but it basically reminds me of the episode last season where he goes on a long spiel about how recruiters and recruiting agencies are scams and then does an ad for Zip Recruiter in that very episode! Like I know you gotta make money Malcolm but practice what you preach or something, find some other ads to do.
