There's a genre in there for everyone
15 June 2016 | by oz_gzgSee all my reviews

This show is amazing! It's an entertaining mix of satire, suspense, sci-fi, horror, and of course, the possibility of romance, with the story set on a political stage. And did I mention ants? No need to be into entomology or politics to enjoy it, but for the political tragic, there are appearances from wannabes Clinton, Trump and Bernard someone or another, with plenty of wheeling and dealing along the way.

Don't be put off by the stupefying title of the first episode, ("The Insanity Principle How Extremism in Politics is Threatening Democracy in the 21st Century").

Give this show a go!
