Goofs

During the firefight between Rimmer, Farah and Estevez, the bullets from Rimmer's machine gun hit the wooden banister, wainscoting etc but don't exit on the rear. Actual machine gun bullets would pass through the wood like it was butter and go through several walls, people etc behind it. See more »

Well written book transferred into a well written script.
12 December 2016 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

Just an amazing well written script with one hell of plot it is just clear to me now that mostly when there is a best selling book already there the screen play will be definitely high rated movie/series.

So things started so mysteriously out of the blue unusual crimes connecting unusual people which will make things go berserk in a really good way, it was all focused on the Holistic people looking at things in a Holistic and "all is connected" and to be honest i kinda got lost in the beginning but things got clearer and clearer with every episode until this one where it all have been unraveled and it was all revolving around Lydia Spring and her father the creator of this mess from a hundred years ago.

The cast was really good, first time "meeting" Samuel Barnett but damn he was really into his role like he was born just for it , as for Elijah Wood ,, bravo .. keeping up with his nervously worrying character back from lord of the rings to lately i'v watched Wilfred i mean just you can't feel bored with his face being so tense with Dirk unintentionally bugging him around. Also not forgetting all of the other characters from Farah Black to Amanda to the hilarious Miguel Sandoval as Colonel Scott Riggins to sadly "killed" .. "hope not" Neil Brown Jr. as Estevez.

finally for the next season and after seeing that things are far from over and with this weird yet applaudable cooperation between Netflix and BBC i do expect another great season and might go on the list of nominees for the Emmay's next year. so keep it up guys.
