Fantastic show
16 June 2015 | by arodger-77607See all my reviews

I only discovered this show thanks to a mention in a review of Humans. To that reviewer - thank you so much!

The concept reminded me very much of "The Prisoner" (original series) - there's an overly happy village where everyone spouts platitudes but with an underbelly of mind control and serious menace; a central hero; lots of uncertainty about what's going on; and it's impossible to escape (or is it?).

The casting, acting, scripts and whole feel of the production were spot- on. I watched the whole show in the course of a couple of days.

Very surprised that it is not well known - I would have expected it to have a cult following. Tried hard to buy DVDs (including looking at online Kiwi shops), but it doesn't seem to be available anywhere. The good news is that the whole series is on Youtube.

Very highly recommended.
