Awesome Start. Slow-burn, but all the better for it.
29 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

I was quite excited for this show and haven't felt let down in the least. I love that it's been a slow start, but that it doesn't spend a lot of time explaining exactly what happened, rather dropping you into the midst of a world under occupation. The inspirations from Nazi-occupied Paris during WW2 are clear, and are wonderful source material to draw from. There aren't big set-pieces or action scenes in the first few episodes, and make no mistake--this is a character- driven drama, but I think that's what makes it special. I don't really get the hate from some on here and elsewhere, and I definitely disagree with those who claim that the show is utterly derivative. I can't say I feel I've seen something quite like this on TV before, or even in films. There are definite parallels to other works in the sci-fi/dystopian genre, but that's no issue as far as I'm concerned. That would be like criticizing a comic book movie for being "derivative". I really hope people will keep giving this the chance that it deserves so it can have the time it needs to live up to its potential.

*Update* Four episodes in and just getting better and better. The tension is definitely building, and many of the predictable twists have turned out to be much more deftly handled than I might have expected.
