Here is a series that is worth looking at. Counterpart here is a mystery / Thriller / espionage And a cold war fell to it. Of course there is the cat and the mouse game no surprise there and danger at every corner and the fact that the characters does not know who to trust. It has a sci-fi feel to it that makes it a little jewel of a series. You will be hooked as soon as you see the first episode. It is interesting because you will see two world different from each other. And what is their supposedly double are doing on the other side? .K. Simmons (Whiplash, Spiderman) is brilliant in both version and so is the ensemble cast. It is taking place in Berlin but I don’t know if it is shot really there. PLus the actors plays a different role in a different setting, it is nice to see how talented they are. Counterpart is an Original idea that works well and intelligently written. Trust me you will not be disappointed in the climatic season finale nor the second season.

This is a no hold bar series who hold no punches on the accounts of prison life. at every episode there is an explanation from a wheel chair bound narrator.
An original series Came out a while back. Since the first episode I was hooked you get a looked on the inside of an experimental prison with a series of flashback of the crimes from the inmates there and it keeps you on the edge of your seat. They are many different gangs who are trying to get the power. There is alliances, there are inmates over powering other inmates do they can become their bitch. There is one character who does not fit there too much Tobias Beecher (Lee Tergesen), who was drunk while driving and killed a teenager in the process. he find out that been a lawyer well respected does not mean a thing in prison, he just an other inmates who is going to be assaulted in just of matter of minutes. The writes has done a great job to keep up the pace for the show. They put some dark humor into it as well. Great show.
