Review: Counterpart Created by Justin Marks; STARZ

Counterpart (Television Series); Created by Justin Marks; STARZ, First episode date: December 10, 2017

Television Shorts


Smart, close to high concept but slower pacing, character development and flashback sequences keep the series leveled.

Major knock: lack of intensity even with sufficient violence and sexual situations.

Interesting facet: pushes the boundaries on what hooks a viewer/reader to a story:

1) Characters -- no major/minor ones to really root for, relate to, etc... (at least for me)

2) Plot -- rare high points that sensationalize the story, topic, etc...

...still, I find myself yearning for the next episode.

Recommendation: MEDIUM-HIGH
