Best of all, it gives its lead, Mia, more than enough relatable motivation to keep viewers intrigued as they discover how all the different strands of action fit together.

Sep 9, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The charm of the lead cast is worth watching the show for alone, and if you can be patient with the first two episodes, then you will watch the following four with excitement and ease.

Sep 9, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The whole thing has a Revenge, Count of Monte Cristo vibe that makes it enticing.

Sep 9, 2020 | Full Review…

We're giving it a marginal recommendation based on the charms of the cast.

Aug 21, 2020 | Full Review…

There's enough drama, I think, for a cautious recommendation, and the ease with which you can chew through the show means you haven't lost much if you stick it out and end up disappointed by the standard Netflix Original non-ending.

Audience Reviews for Biohackers: Season 1

    This is a story of vengeance. It combines teenagers life in Germany with story of lab experiments. Despite not too deep, it is flowing, mysterious, and enjoyable to watch. There are fun moments, also some tense moments. The cinematography and acting are not that great, but still worth seeing. Similar vibe with ‘Dare Me' / ‘Warrior Nun' | follow us at @uncle.review

    Fun but they shouldn't try to set up a second season so hard the story doesnt merit it.

    Bastante predecible, me ha aburrido. Pero si no tienes otra cosa que hacer está bien.

    Das deutsche Film und Serienproduktionen sich nicht mehr hinter den großen Stars aus England und den Vereinigten Staaten ja mittlerweile sogar der ganzen Welt verstecken müssen, steht nach Erfolgen wie "Dark", "Babylon Berlin" oder "How to sell drugs online (fast)" außer frage, Aber bei der im August 2020 neu erschienenen deutschen Netflix Serie "Biohackers" ist so wirklich alles schief gelaufen. Dabei ist die Geschichte garnicht mal so schlecht überlegt: Die Medizinstudentin Mia (Luna Wedler) will sich an ihrer Proffessorin Dr. Lorenz (Jessica Schwarz) rächen da diese ihren Bruder nach geheimen Experimenten auf dem Gewissen hat, und schleust sich dazu in die Gruppe der mit der Proffessorin engvertauten ein. Was also kann man bei diesem simplen aber trotzdem modernen Plot alles falsch machen? Zunächst einmal gibt es da die Darstellung der Charaktere, welche schwanken zwischen den übertriebenen, ja sogar komödiantischen Rollen der WG Mitbewohnern und den dann wiederum Überdramatisierten Hauptcharakteren, die zur not auch mal während einer eineinhalb minütigen Szene quer durch einen Hörsaal maschieren müssen (Treppe rauf und runter inklusive) um ihrem Dramatischen gesprochenen Monolog Eindruck und Tiefe zu verschaffen. Es scheint im allgemeinen so als wäre sich niemand richtig einig gewesen ob man hier eine Komödie oder ein Drama produziert. Wenn ich bei einem Dramatischen Autounfall laut auflache, weil eine der beteiligten Darstellerinen penetrant und krampfhaft lächelt, während sie wie eine CGI Figur aussieht und rum wackelt, so dass das ganze eher an eine Achterbahnfahrt erinnert, dann ist das Drama für mich gescheitert! Auch die ständigen Flashbacks zu Mias Vergangenheit wirken platt und lassen den Zuschauer nicht wirklich weiter über deren Inhalte nachdenken, sie wirken uninteressant und fehl am Platz. Einzig und allein die erste Szene, welche als One-shot in einem Zug spielt weckt interesse und ist ein Grund sich durch die sechs Folgen der ersten und hoffentlich letzten Staffel zu kämpfen, doch bei dieser einen ansprechenden und gleichzeitig verwirrenden Szene bleibt es leider auch. Bleibt nur noch den fast zehn minütigen Abspann zu skippen und erleichtert zu bemerken dass die Serie durch diesen ganze 60 Minuten kürzer ist. Biohackers ist ein weiteres Werk von Christian Ditter, dass sich zusammen mit "Türkisch für Anfänger" bitte wieder an den Ort verziehen soll an dem es ausgebrütet wurde. Kinderfilme wie "Die Vorstadtkrokodile" und "Wickie" kann Ditter eindeutig besser.

    Although its title and premise are more interesting than the series itself, Biohackers is very easy to watch, hooks you on, and makes your viewing journey light and entertaining. Although I expected much more, given its theme and the possibilities it offers, I am not dissatisfied or dissapointed either. The plot doesnt loose time, it always beat the rymth and Luna Wedler acting is very convincing.

    The characters motivations don't really make sense. It required me to suspend my disbelief too many times to not be confused by the characters and story.

    Germany is doing great at creating interesting series, which has been proved by the Biohackers. Original plot, interesting idea, unpredictable.
  • Aug 31, 2020
    It is somewhat reminiscent of Orphan Black, but an original fast-paced story all to itself. I enjoy watching a short but great intentional series.
  • Aug 29, 2020
    The storyline is highly predictable. There are no suprises, no suspense. Additionally, there are many plot holes, unlikely escapes and logical fallacies. Moreover, the topic (biohacking, gene editing) is not portrayed very accurately nor is it protrayed as morally ambigious. The storyline is that a woman who wants to change the world obviously has to do bad things in order for it to succeed. Change topic at will, works with everything. So far so boring. Additionally, they tried to insert some not working romance twist. Boring and unwatchable. The only way I can explain the other reviews is the lack of new content due to Covid-19.

    I really enjoyed that series. There were so many twists in the story line, it was spellbinding. Great actors, most of them were new faces. The scenery around Freiburg, Germany where it was filmed is beautiful. I can't wait for the 2nd season. The series is entirely in German, no subtitles. It would be great to see an English version in the future.
