Very boring....

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Puzzle box shows -- which rely on a twist at the end of the season that puts everything that preceded it into a surprising new context -- tend to suffer from a lack of actual drama. They can often be too invested in world-building or setting up mysteries to attend to their characters, so there's nothing to latch onto besides the promise of the twist. Biohackers may ultimately suffer the same fate, but its inventive filmmaking and cyberpunk touches are immediately more promising than similar shows like Westworld or Devs. 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.
