Three teenagers are catapulted into another reality far removed from everything they've ever known and everyone they've ever loved.
19 February 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Engaging, intelligent and literally dripping with potential! "Shifters" Episodes 1-3 ("Changes", "Evolution" and "Memories") sweep the viewer up into a world of alternate realities and unexpected intrigue and mystery.

With obvious initial parallels to the 1995 science fiction adventure series, "Sliders", "Shifters" takes the idea into new territory. The series is an exploration of the human condition set against the backdrop of shifting realities and the angst of teenage drama.

The pilot episode, "Changes", is a little slow to begin with as the characters are introduced, but soon kicks into high gear, leading into the drama of "Evolution" which is the series' most exciting installment to date - though not it's most intriguing. The intrigue and real world-building efforts start with episode three ("Memories") where the main characters discover darker versions of themselves manipulating events in potentially exciting and unexpected ways.

"Shifters" initially appears to be episodic in nature, but by episode three the audience can see a very interesting arc starting to build - allowing the series to balance a potential audience by catering to those casual viewers who might pick it up half way through as well as those who prefer a larger canvas and the follow through of epic story-telling.

"Shifters" is an independent, original series developed by Terrance M Young that is filmed on location around South East Queensland, in Australia.

Originally intended for young viewers, the plot development and story ideas have more than enough excitement and cliff-hanger moments in them for adult viewers to enjoy.

The main cast of the show, Daniel George, Mansoor Noor, Tenneille Holden and Josh Ockenden are excellent. From a slightly shaky start in episode one, each of the young cast finds their feet and their characters by episode two and they are wonderful to watch. A television series or film is only as good as its characters, regardless of special effects and script quality and Daniel, Mansoor, Tenneille and Josh draw you in and make you care about what happens to our heroes. Each young actor has an amazing future ahead of them. Daniel's Michael is at first cocky but soon becomes intense and interesting as the burden of responsibility starts to weigh on him. Mansoor's Sam is a joy to watch, bringing much needed levity to a sometimes dark story. Tenneille's Krystal starts out as petulant and obnoxious but you quickly fall in love with this strong, courageous and intelligent character. Josh is introduced in episode three, but his character quickly captures your attention with his emotional intensity.

This independent series, airing on Brisbane 31, could become Australia's first big science fiction export if given half a chance.
