Unbelievable
24 September 2018 | by robertandrews-63249See all my reviews

Literally, unbelievable...mostly because it's so bizarre...u know those shows and movies with endings that make no sense? Well this is the opposite...nothing really makes sense till the end. So well done, from the acting to the tiny alternate world details...I was glued and watched all 10 episodes in one sitting...yea I know I dont have a life and I love it that way. Anyhow, just watch it, through all the weird bizarro stuff and asking ureself why ure watching...just watch it all and enjoy...WOW!!!
