All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

The show earns its 1984 echo with a government that disappears dissidents and rewrites the historical record, and its Internet-age take on the surveillance state.

Does a fine job of playing out an intriguing mystery while not leaning on its alternate-reality gimmick too hard.

Doesn't lay its alternate reality on too heavily, instead relying on its mix of revolutionaries and sympathetic officers for a tense mystery well-suited to our own current reality.
