Black Mirror did it better in 1 episode
18 November 2019 | by TuranicSee all my reviews

The show starts brilliant, at the end of episode 2 it still has a certain plot development then in episode 3 this slows down to a still... If you expect Tom Cruise "War of the worlds ", don't, in fact this seems worse than a single robodog episode of Black Mirror which had plenty of decent action, what it feels like is "Walking dead" without Zombies with pretty boring characters - you have A Mom with two children, a 40 years old guy and an elderly scientist, by far the elderly scientist is the most intresting character in the show, I do not think I will be watching this after episode 3, I've seen it before...
