Storyline

John Tavner doesn't really fit in with his quirky colleagues at the industrial piping corporation where he works. They don't really know much about him, but what they don't realize is that his life has been anything but mundane. To prevent Iran from going nuclear, he has assumed a fake persona as an average businessman when in reality he is actually a highly skilled intelligence officer, who took the piping job because of the routine business trips to Luxembourg, and because the job is secluded and too dull to be noticed. Unfortunately for him a European cop is at his heels trying to discover who he is, his incessantly grim and nervous coworker Mr. Icabod has figured out that he isn't who he says, and Steven, a chubby employee with a recent brain injury, is starting to remember a horrible act which John may have inflicted.

Perfect
6 April 2017 | by kels-rush77See all my reviews

This show does Dark Comedy perfectly. The episodes are well paced yet each episode is able to convey important set pieces and elements which play into the plot later.

Every episode had me saying the words "oh s**t" due to it's mounting tension where simple looking plans are formed and then thrown out the window because something wrong happened. I constantly was wondering what would happen next and each episode kept me completely hooked. I loved all of the characters of which made me feel different emotions from anger to joy, even the more reprehensible of them as they are written with multiple dimensions.

I don't want to spoil the plot of the show as in my opinion would be a disservice to anyone who has not yet seen the show all the way through.

Cinematography is beautiful, the colors stand out and really gives the show a unique look. The soundtrack is amazing (I've been listening to it all week), and the acting is top notch.

Please for the love of God Amazon, make another season. Gamble with another one because this show will catch on with more people. I honestly believe this is the next Breaking Bad-esq critical breakthrough that nobody saw coming but will become huge after further development. Don't rush it, ensure it's of a high a quality as the first season and it WILL catch on.

Anyway, conclusion... Yea this is awesome, the first Amazon exclusive show I actually liked.
