Atypical Series: Kaleidoscope (Netflix)


The story of a heist over 25 years in which experienced robbers, pursued by the police, try to break into a warehouse guarded by a talented security team in order to recover the loot of the century. The series is structured around eight episodes covering the 24 years leading up to the robbery and the six months after.

Kaleidoscope offers a surprising viewing concept: each Netflix user is offered episodes of this heist series in a different order. If one says “Yellow” first, then “Blue” and so on. if he sees the episode, another subscriber will see “Green” first, and so on. Therefore, the story of the series is mixed and can approach in all directions, moving between time periods that are more or less distant from the work at the center of the story. All of this helps to spice up the plot, which is ultimately quite banal as we’ve seen and considered heist stories.

If the advantage Kaleidoscope hence the structure of his narrative, we have fun putting the pieces of his puzzle in order as the viewing progresses. Then we have a series that requires us to give it our full attention, because a momentary distraction can prevent us from making certain connections within the story. The upside is that the series is also backed by an impressive cast that piques our interest. In the end, even if we remove the disorder from the episodes, we have a good time following the organization of this gigantic heist. Kaleidoscope does not revolutionize the genre.

If you find that the current temperatures are not seasonal enough and this winter is not cold, immerse yourself in the icy universe of the world. Snowpiercer. This series is adapted from a comic book Transperceneige Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette invite their audience to a train to nowhere, where the last survivors of humanity lead a particularly hierarchical life. The series now has three seasons, each as charming as the next.

Just because the series takes place on a nonstop moving train doesn’t mean it can’t always find a way to surprise its audience. Under his fake camera airs, Snowpiercer drives its heroes and enthralls the audience from one episode to the next. The characters are nuanced, with bad guys and good guys always changing. Then we cling to the carriages of this extraordinary train to watch with interest the dramatic adventures of the passengers. See without hesitation.
