ALICE IN BORDERLAND - SEASON ONE
The production is slick, the action is well-choreographed and exciting, the games are clever, and the characters are believable as best friends thrust into an unpredictable and dangerous situation.
This was my favourite of all the NCIS shows and the only one I watched regularly. I'm so disappointed that's it's been cancelled. I will be watching it in reruns!
It's a surprisingly good action, crime, and drama show. It's more drama, and crime of course, however, when the action starts, it seems fairly realistic. Very little of the Hollywood gun make-believe shows up.
The story goes back and forth from Belgium and France with actual filming of some beautiful real-life locations, until the action kicks in, then it magically ends up on a nondescript back alley or an abandoned location with a few extras thrown in without any lines unless you count a quick scream followed by them running away, or them walking away with the look on their face that says, yes, it's just another Tuesday with a gun pointed at me.
As long as you have access to closed captioning and don't mind reading during the slow parts to understand what's happening, or you know the language, then you should enjoy this show.
