Video archivist Dan is tasked to restore a set of damaged video tapes recovered from a fire. He finds an oral history project by a young woman named Melody on the film but as Dan progresses through the tapes, it seems like the project may not have been the only thing captured. The closer he seems to getting to the truth, the more Dan feels watched and the more he thinks he may be able to save Melody.

My Thoughts

This series started off confusing enough as to what exactly is going on. The dual story line is hard to keep straight at times. This story borders on the strange and bizarre with unexpected twists that I didn’t see coming. There is an eerie quality to this show that makes it stick with you long after you have turned it off. Despite the dissonance it creates, you are glued to each episode trying to unravel the truth along with Dan. I am looking forward to and hoping for a season 2!
