Excellent
20 February 2015 | by daniel-morton-245-203098See all my reviews

I've been waiting a while to watch this and it really didn't disappoint. Really tense, really well written, with great characters. First Orphan Black and now Xcompany. Canada is on the up- and-up TV wise.

I thought that it also looked great from an aesthetic point of view. Production values were high and it was very cool to see a show set it Europe that seems to actually be filmed there. Acting was also top notch.

I recommend this show to anyone who wants to watch a damn good thriller with damn good characters and a plot that keeps moving at a good pace.
