Severance isn’t a show about quitting your job, it’s about burning it down

1. Take a moment to count the things you give up for your paycheck. Have you ever missed a birthday? marriage? Have you ever had to leave a loved one who was sad or ill because you couldn’t afford to choose them at work? Have you ever felt like a choice?

2. break, Produced by Dan Erickson, the Apple TV Plus show tells the story of the fictitious employees of the microdata processing department of Lumon Industries. No one knows what this means, including the worker who simply goes through the matrix of numbers and removes the “frightening-looking” numbers. Their work is top secret, and they all go through a process called ‘separation’ and their hearts are divided. Their work itself has no knowledge of their lives if they are outside. This means that their working personality, commonly known as the “Innies,” are actually new people who know the life inside Lumon. One working day carries over to the next, and only lift rides separate them.

3. Now think of all the times you ordered coffee at Starbucks using words you wouldn’t use otherwise. The amount of time the work was labeled as “content” or “intellectual property”. Lifestyle tips to scour as many podcasts or books as possible. Every time you promise to “go back” in a conversation. Who taught you this?

4. Mark Scout (Adam Scott) mourns. His “Outie”, a brand that exists outside of Lumon, lost his wife Gemma in an accident. He explains to those who ask that severance pay is one way to deal with losses. He didn’t have to think about Gemma for eight hours. Some argue with him, saying the practice is exploitative. The experts on TV are winning the advantages of this procedure back and forth. All this wears him out. He’s getting what he needs from severance pay, and his life outside Lumon is almost empty.

5. The workplace, its characteristics, and some psychological distortions have always been part of our pop culture landscape. Art not only shapes culture, it does work and empowers with a stronger hand. So it is perfectly natural for them to cross the road. This is where the tension between the 24/7 life and the outside in comedy and work procedural provides the conflict that drives the story. Unfortunately there is usually very little space between them. And more and more the characters of this story become unhappy.

6. In the world End, Kier Eagan is the supreme ruler. Lumon founder Kier was inspired by the Employee Handbook (the only approved literature in the field), which also serves as a propaganda hagiography. His life inspires a few art pieces on the wall created in-house by a team called Optique et Design. Some fun activities for the Micro-Data Refinement (MDR) team to enjoy include a trip to the Hall of Perpetuity, a wax museum honoring Kier and his ancestors who guided Lumon through American history. His scepter is adorned with his words, “Those who are remembered do not decay.” It could be on purpose. Instead of reminding employees how to think of a leader, remind the people who represent your company what they think of them.

7. You talk about a great resignation. In the aftermath of the daily pandemic, the national media reported whether the lessons of the past two years had lessons in work or workers were broken, and in what ways. You can see how the unions are formed and companies are starting to show concerns about worker safety. An epidemic is ongoing. World bosses call this a ‘return to normal’. But this summit appears to be asking no one.

8. Trick Do EndThe metaphor is that it doesn’t really exist. It is simply to provide a logical explanation of what we do and what we do to ourselves as we go to work every day. We didn’t start our lives by talking like that, we didn’t always expect lowly office parties, and we didn’t trust the tycoons and the robbers. These are learned behaviors, but what if you adopt them? you’re going far, kid

9. Genesis presents work as a result of man’s fallen nature. In the Garden of Eden, the earth, originally created as a self-sufficient paradise, was cursed as a judgment for original sin. The first people perished. God says you must sweat on your forehead to get bread. This phrase is best known for its ending, “Dust you are, and to dust you will return.” So: We are born to work and we die. It’s a tragedy. Some seem to disagree.

10. In the second to last episode EndMark’s first season and the three accounts of Micro-Data Refinement (improved accomplice Irving (John Turturro), blasphemous workaholic Dylan (Zach Cherry), and rebellious new hire Helly (Britt Lower)) were angry, and others From Dylan, Lumon can turn on her cut character outside of work when her boss, Seth Milchick (Tramel Tillman), asked him a question in his former home. As a result, Dylan discovers that he has a child outside of Rumon, and for the first time everything he steals from him becomes a reality.

11. It takes a lot of time to quit my job. Most do this when work becomes impossible rather than unsustainable. Because life in a capitalist system offers fewer opportunities to the marginalized and fewer people who can call themselves privileged. When poverty and housing are at stake, you don’t stop evaluating your choices. This is the most difficult part of organizing your workplace. Because the inequality is not evenly distributed, even if the company has a common enemy who wields tremendous power over the lives of its employees. Some people are expected to suffer more humiliation than others, and those lucky enough to be protected must persuade those who are not to risk their jobs for the sake of others. No one takes part in the fight unless it’s an individual.

12. You can see End Apple TV Plus is a streaming service from one of the world’s most powerful tech companies, regularly announcing new products live on stage to thousands of avid fans who know the autobiography of the company’s founder. Modern businesses exist to grow, not to provide services or products. Indefinitely without an obvious purpose, such as cancer. This streaming service is the latest addition to a company that lacks room for growth and is moving away from simple device creation for manufacturing reasons to keep users engaged. Entertainment services are now like insurance companies, charging a monthly fee for viewing. what whenever you want. You’re probably doing this with a box you bought from the same company after you quit your job. And that’s a good thing. Who has the time and energy to figure out how to nagging not accurate It is.

13. In the season finale, Dylan becomes the vehicle the MDR team uses to prepare for a suspenseful assault on an unsuitable life. He hijacks Severance’s control room and uses the control panel Milchick used on him to wake up a comrade in the middle of his life. It’s an attempt to convey how miserable they all are, with the added pressure of Dylan having to navigate through a barricaded space to turn on the switch and not know how long he can hold out to contain Innis. Out. He was eventually caught, and when Milchick tried to bribe him in a robbery, Dylan yelled at him for what he really wanted. “I want to remember when my damn child was born!” right here, End There seems to be less satire.

14. Again, End It’s not a metaphor. The corporate hype it represents is unnecessary because we already give in to it every day. Not that we had a choice.

1. Take a moment to count the things you gave up for a paycheck. Have you ever missed a birthday? A marriage? Have you ever had to leave a grieving or sick loved one simply because you couldn’t afford to choose them over the job? Has it ever felt like a choice?
2. break, the Apple TV Plus show created by Dan Erickson, follows workers in the Micro-Data Refinement department of the fictional Lumon Industries. Nobody knows what that means, including the workers, who just parse through a matrix of numbers and remove the numbers that “look scary”. Their work is top secret and all have undergone a procedure known as “separation”, their minds split in two. Their work themselves have no knowledge of their life once they are out. This means that their working personas – dubbed “innies” in common parlance – are actually new people, who only know life inside Lumon. One workday stretches into the next, with only an elevator ride to separate them.

He gets what he needs from his severance package, and his life outside of Lumon is effectively empty.
5. Workplaces and their idiosyncrasies, their little psychological distortions, have always been part of our pop cultural landscape. Art shapes culture, but so does work, and with a stronger hand. So it’s only natural that they intersect: in comedies and workplace procedurals, where the tension between life on and off the clock provides the conflict that fuels the stories. Usually there is unfortunately little space in between. And increasingly, the characters in these stories are miserable.
6. In the world of Breakup, Kier Eagan reigns supreme. Lumon founder Kier is the inspiration for the employee handbook (the only authorized literature on site), which doubles as propaganda hagiography. His life inspires the few works of art on the walls, which are made in-house by a team called Optique et Design. Among the recreational activities the Micro-Data Refinement (MDR) team can undertake is a trip to the Hall of Perpetuity, a wax museum that celebrates Kier and his ancestors who guided Lumon through American history. His hall is adorned with his words: “The man remembered does not decay.” It’s a cruel joke when he dominates the people who work for his company, people who don’t remember who they are. Maybe it’s by design. Not to remind employees how they should think of their corporate bosses, but how those who represent the company think of them.

7. They talk about the Great Resignation. In the fallout from a business as usual pandemic, debates are playing out in the national media, where no one can seem to agree whether the lesson of the past two years is that work is broken, or workers are, and of what way. If the labor debate lacks clarity in the abstract, look a little closer and find it in the details, where unions are forming among workers at one of the world’s largest corporations and corporations are beginning to drop even the pretense of concern for worker safety as the pandemic progresses. World bosses call it “a return to normal”. This normality, however, seems to be one where no one asks questions.
8. The trick to BreakupThe metaphor is that there really isn’t. It’s simply about offering a logical explanation for the things we do to ourselves – and are done to us – every day when we go to work. We didn’t start our lives talking to each other like that, we didn’t always look forward to menial office parties, we didn’t trust tycoons and robber barons. These are learned behaviors, but what if you adopted them? You will go far, child.
9. The book of Genesis presents work as a consequence of the fallen nature of mankind. In the Eden story, the Earth, originally created as a self-contained paradise, is cursed as a judgment for original sin. The first humans are doomed: by the sweat of your brow, God tells them, you will earn your bread. This is a passage best known for its ending: “For dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.” Thus: We are born to work, then die. It’s a tragedy. Some seem to think otherwise.
10. In the penultimate episode of BreakupDuring Mark’s first season and his three reports in Micro-Data Refinement – reformed accomplice Irving (John Turturro), profane workaholic Dylan (Zach Cherry) and rebellious new recruit Helly (Britt Lower) – became disgruntled, fueled by, among other things, Dylan learning that Lumon can turn on their cut characters outside of the workplace when supervisor Seth Milchick (Tramel Tillman) questions him at his ex’s house.

Hijacking Severance’s control room, he uses the switchboard Milchick used on him to wake up his co-workers in the middle of their Outie’s life. It’s an attempt to convey how miserable they all are, with the added pressure of not knowing how long Dylan – who has to stretch across the barricaded room to keep the switches on – will be able to keep the innies at bay. the outside. He is eventually discovered, and as Milchick tries to bribe him with benefits as he breaks in, Dylan yells at him what he really wants: “I want to remember when my fucking child was born!” Right here, Breakup looks less like a satire.
