What’s it about
After having been watching TV since the days of Jack Benny and George Burns and his wife Gracie, I’ve seen it all – from “great” to “how in the hell did that get on the air?”.
Judging “Counterpart” from every possible angle (writing, directing, casting, acting, and on ad infinitum) I can with complete honesty state that I believe its one of the *the* best series that I’ve ever had the pleasure of watching. Even for those who are not fans of science fiction, I think its close to impossible not to at least admire the acting abilities of the cast members, who have been turning in some performances tremendously above those in most other shows.
And, this show provides us with the wonderful bonus of encouraging us to *think* – should we be inclined to do so. The aspects of theoretical physics on which the premises are based can be fascinating. While many people are considering this series as science fiction – it actually shouldn’t be in that category. Einstein wouldn’t think so, in any case!
