I found this show intriguing and engaging, but I have a number of complaints. As mentioned above, there are a lot of tonal shifts that I find off-putting. Breaking Bad did a great job of injecting bits of humor to break up tension, but Utopia doesn't seem to know if it is an over the top action comedy, or a gritty/dark reflection of a bleak society.
I would say that overall I liked it, but I think they could have done a little better at just thinking through some of the scenes to determine if they make sense. For example, having one guy running a bunch of twitter bots makes way more sense than having an ultra hip office full of Gen Z-ers just waiting to take be unleashed on twitter. Also, pretty much everything about the warehouse scene. The more I think about this the more scenes that just don't make sense.
