Breath of fresh air TV needs right now!
4 August 2016 | by ArtAestheticsSee all my reviews

I mainly watch Netflix or Amazon shows lately. Saw this on Amazon and decided to give it a try. Wasn't expecting much. I don't enjoy political shows as such. I was hooked within the first 10 minutes. One of the best pilots I've seen. The protagonist Laurel, an idealist documentary film maker, gets caught in the web of politics & mystery during her casual visit with her political brother & dad in D.C.

We follow her as she discovers the crazy politics mixed with some sci-fi mystery. We quickly identify with her as she navigates the capitol like a fish out of water, yet can see underneath the surface with her astute mind. The characters & their interaction is really fun to watch.

I hope many people watch this brilliant show. It's really like nothing TV right now. I'd say it's a combination of Veep & The X-files done in the most brilliant way.
