I have not heard about this show until I saw episode 1 on Starz online. I like JK Simmons and he is a great actor and he does not get too many leading roles so I took a chance to watch the show. The show is a future sci-fi spy thriller where Howard Silk (JK) meets his double also named Howard. Each episode has twists and turns. I love the production design of the sets and costumes to make the two worlds very distinct. This review does not do it justice. You love it when you watch for the first time.
Well done, some familiar faces from other shows. Interesting concept of parallel worlds, very well done. The story does not get boring, and you actually care about the characters. A pleasure to watch, worth the money to have at finger tips. Good binge watch!
"Counterpart" offers a unique premise regarding another parallel universe involving the protagonist's doppelganger. But as the plot progresses, things are not what they appear to be while showcasing an interesting story that has some promise to this freshman series. The acting is also done very well by working man actor J.K. Simmons.
