I binge watched this after hearing the interview on NPR and stumbled across it accidentally the day before its release. It's a brilliant concept that keeps you on the edge of your seat. It's the right mix of psychological thriller, sci-fi, fantasy, time travel novella, and murder mystery all wrapped into one beautiful little package. The episodes are great bite-sized chapters that keep you enthralled and guessing where the story will go next. I'm torn between desperately hoping there will be a season 2 and hoping there won't as it's nearly perfect in the way it concludes. Its approach hearkens back to the best of the science fiction of the 1920s and 30s with a modern twist, and sensual visuals that create a vividly porous connection between the real and surreal.
