This show had a nice premise but absolutely failed in carrying it out.

They start you out by showing you how our main character is a great salesman and can pick out details about a person to draw a complete image of what their life is like, and then this Never Gets Brought Up Again. It's not a character strength later. It's not a plot point. It's literally never important again, even though they spent the entire beginning of the show detailing it.

The bad guys realize exactly how the phone works after only seeing it happen once, and not even seeing the phone itself during that one time. The final confrontation is very overplayed. The acting is overdone the whole show, actually. And the idols in the company are so obviously unhappy and uncomfortable around their managers/CEO/etc that it seems incredibly unbelievable that no one has noticed there's a problem. There are side characters that apparently had side plot things happening but we never actually see it, so randomly at the end we're told about how this dream or that dream came true for them, but we never knew they had that dream in the first place, or that any of this side plot related stuff even existed?

I did like that the ending stuck to the original statements made about the magic cell phone, but that's about it. And then the very end of the show felt like it negated its own lore.

I didn't connect with any of the characters and I only marginally cared what happened to them. The longer it went on, the more aggravated and disappointed I was.

I do not recommend it.
