A promising start but what about that sticky rim thing?
16 May 2015 | by ricbarrettSee all my reviews

There are two rules to live life by. Number one is never tell anyone everything you know and I feel that this series does a great job in that regard so it keeps you on your seat in that way. Of course, this is sci~fi and it's sci~fi with a little bit of twist. If you're a sci~fi fan then you should enjoy this show.

I have to say that it's set in London, or what looks like London but just in the future. In this regard the location scout did a great job. Thumbs up to them.

Another really good thing about this series is that it keeps you on the edge of your seat with punchy dramatics and interesting narrative style.

There's a girl, a citizen of the future, and she thinks she is going crazy because she has to always think about things and write things down on her PC. Maybe there might be too much by way of plot overlays, I don't think so but I can see why other people might. I have had 30 years of sci~fi experience and this series pressed almost all of the sci~fi buttons, which isn't an easy thing to do on such a low budget.

Onto the budget. This really does look like a million pound show but they didn't have a budget of a million pounds. So well done to the CGI department. There we some FX that I could tell were CGI but all the rest I couldn't so they stitched them in well and the FX helped to push the plot along a lot.

To conclude, I would say that sci~fi fans should give this a go. It has futurist elements which are combined well with current social issues and its social currency pays for itself in keeping with modern times. The lighting is amazing and you will really feel teleported into the future. Big thumbs up to the director for this.
