Serious yet Funny, Silly yet Laser Sharp Smart, Goofy yet Brainy....
12 August 2016 | by HaveWisdomWillTravelSee all my reviews

Didn't look appealing by the book cover. Come on, bugs, bio gore and huh what, more politics in an election year?

Most faces aren't familiar (they did poach a few from the Good Wife and Mr.Monk). My kind of show are Persons of interest and Mr.Robot, my level of blood/gore, Preacher and True Blood. Am not a House of Card nor Walking Dead fan so exploding brains wasn't something I'd anticipate with glee...

But then it gets real exciting real fast. Endless curiosities...

Self-combustion heads when and where you least expect, retro cocktails in new cool bars with old fashion spies, actors who're just the right level of clever and cute and definitely know their character well. Soon I got dragged deeper and deeper by mystery bug language, and really creative use of modified smart phone bug tracker.

It's now my most favorite show...

I got sucked in by 2nd episode. By 3rd, I want this show to last 10 seasons.

The brand of humor is fresh, sarcastic, lethal, irreverent, and fun plus plus. The visual, art direction, and especially plotting craft, seamless and superb. Pure brainy entertainment!

Watch it yourself to find out...
