Trivia

A review from the Boston Herald stated, "Cleverman is unlike any other TV miniseries you've seen before. The gritty Australian production uses a sci-fi backdrop to test notions of racial identity and integration with a twist of supernatural terror", and went on to say "The first episode is confusing, introducing a multitude of characters and agendas. Stay with it. The second episode brings several of the characters and the conflicts into focus." See more »

Something interesting and different
23 June 2016 | by letshaveagoodtmSee all my reviews

This is definitely a different story and unusual characters. This series is a significant change of pace from the typical science fiction story line. The dialog and the acting is pretty decent as well. I am guessing it has a more social impact for the Australian audience but it is not totally lost on a US audience.

I will be honest I cannot think of a lot more to say other than to say you should give it a chance and watch 2 or 3 episodes before you decide one way or the other.

I think IMDb should rethink the 10 line minimum for a review, that is certainly more than I need to offer a meaningful opinion one way or the other.
