Drama | created by Eric Garcia | Watch on Netflix

Kaleidoscope is a show with a fascinating premise: a non-linear series with episodes that can be watched in any order. The story is told over the span of 25 years, documenting a grand heist from motivation through fallout. In typical heist stories, the viewer is meant to root for the crew who—while flawed—have noble intentions. In Kaleidoscope, most characters have few redeeming qualities and the viewer is meant to pity them. The problem here is that this message is somewhat lost under the Ocean’s 11-style panache in the execution, which muddies the show’s ultimate message as a cautionary tale about the futility of revenge.
