Another day, another Netflix home-run.
4 February 2018 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

Well by now i don't know if its needed to review Netflix original series ,, i mean ,,if it has the "Netflix" name on it ,just with no hesitation watch it..

The series has an original plot,, a genuine story in the future not like any other Sci-Fi ,, Here humans can live forever , clone themselves and "jump" between bodies ,, but unlike any other sci-fi, here the drama was so heightened , the action and the fight scene were so fast and futuristic , the scientific correctness was on point and as close as possible to the far future but also as close as possible to being believable and scientifically "probable".

Al the 6 writers of the show were amazing , and well known to be involved in other "fantasies" or "sci-fi" like from "True blood" to "Daredevil" and "Da Vinci's Demons" and Netflix "The Punisher" so they're all familiar with what Netflix usually offers to the viewers and they are familiar with what sci-fi and action/drama would look like of the small screen.. and they indeed did an amazing job in here, making the show as usual fast, well connected and easily understandable which makes you dragged and wanting to finish the whole series in on day.

The cast was really good,, maybe in the first episodes they all looked weird with their new fresh faces but then you start recognize them, oh it's that guy from Suicide Squad "Joel Kinnaman" and look it's "Hiro Kanagawa" :D and that's "James Purefoy" from "The Following" but even the new faces like that hot Mexican "Martha Higareda", she was really good.

Finally, i haven't yet heard any news of renewal, but well i think it's obvious since they left the door wide open in the final scene for a new big plot enough for another 10 episodes , but who knows ;)
