The story takes place in Paris, although one doesn’t get to know that until much later into the series. The plot follows a man who is always on his own, yet never alone. He is being followed by some stranger who manages to see every move this man makes through cameras all over the city; on the streets, inside public washrooms, subways, everywhere.
This show is nominated, this year, for a Webby Award and I don’t know really know how to respond to that. I’m not sure why it is nominated, to be honest. The show has the same, flat plot each and every episode. A man we never get to know anything about is always walking the streets of Paris alone. Eventually in the episode he, again, finds out that someone is watching him on camera. Then the chase between him and the mystery camera man begins and ends… until next episode.
Episode 1 involves the man being watched in a public washroom. But more than that happens. Mysteriously, an invisible being enters the bathroom and flips the man on his back. I was instantly intrigued. I thought the show was going to move in a supernatural direction. But the story never entertains that angle of the plot again. We never get to know who flipped that man in the public bathroom. It certainly wasn’t the ‘camera man’. So therefore, there must be someone else in the conspiracy. However, we never get know. It never comes back in the story again. Many parts of the plot get dropped like that and little to no information about any of the characters get revealed.
There are just too many holes in the plot and too many questions that never get answered. In spite of the Webby nomination, I still can’t give this show even half a squashed pumpkin. This series gets fully squashed.
