What's with the chicken?!
23 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

This series has really impressed me with its originality, superb acting and LOL moments. But really...what is with the chicken in this storyline?! The flashback scenes remind me of LOST, providing more insight into the characters back stories and giving their personalities more depth. What I really like about this series is that it is so unpredictable. The characters are totally multi-dimensional and you want to learn more about how all of them got there. There's a character who claims to be a religious "Sister"...but then what has she done to be interned? This has so far been a very colourful and absorbing series and so refreshing. I am binge watching my way through the season as each episode is so effortless to view and time just flies by for all the good reasons!
