Truly chilling to watch Season 1 in 2018
16 July 2018 | by dent-7See all my reviews

Just binge-watched Season 1 in 2018. Was a little slow to start but much plausible manipulation and we are currently facing an Australian bipartisan attempt to put the through legislation that's as scary as anything in this thriller.
