A young woman returns home after disappearing seven years earlier…
That doesn’t even begin to describe this strange tale of near-death experiences, mad scientists, juvenile delinquents and spiritual hope. Yes, I am being wilfully cryptic! But if you don’t mind an occasionally far-fetched yarn, beautifully filmed with an excellent ensemble cast spanning the generations then you may find yourself taken by this. I watched it greedily over just a couple of days. Be warned, there is strong language and some sexual scenes.
I also took this in over the holidays, i wasnt overly fussed with it, in fact i found it really frustrating especially the end... But season 2 may "i hope" start to explain some things
I agree with "frustrating" and the ending was a wee bit left-field to put it mildly. But the story-telling elements werre good and the acting superb, Jason Isaacs bringing a particularly disturbing normality to the villain of the piece.
