Captivating and well written
19 May 2018 | by DimensiondarkSee all my reviews

First off I have to say Gemma Chan is simply brilliant in her performance through and through. I normally do not like Brit shows as I find them dry.

I gave this show a shot as it was a familiar story to one of my favourite movies (I Robot). However it is far less shoot 'em up action and way deeper in story and character developement.

There are a few actors I'm not overly fond of but most and specially Chan are simply amazing. I was completely gripped by the end of the first episode.

The only thing that really sucks about this show is that there are only 8 episodes per season. A show of this calibre certainly deserves more. Not sure if it is a Brit thing or not but seriously 8? I guess that is how you know it is a great show. It leaves you wanting more and more!
