Netflix has eight-part series that can be watched in any order and it will affect how you view the story


Rather than forcing yourself to watch eight episodes of something you don’t like but really need to know the ending to – well, it turns out there could be another option.

Last year, the streaming service dropped a non-linear anthology TV series, which means you can watch any of the eight episodes in any order.

So if you watch one episode and don’t like the storyline, then there’s a chance you might like a different episode.

The Netflix itself spans 25 years and follows a group of experienced thieves who attempt to break into a vault for a $7 billion payday.

Titled Kaleidoscope, you can watch each episode – named after a colour – in no particular order.

Pretty cool right?

Now, the Eric Garcia led project is incredibly based on a sort-of true story, as he explained: “After Hurricane Sandy, $70 billion worth of bonds got flooded in the basement of the DTCC, which is a large clearing effort that’s owned by a bunch of the big banks.

“To my mind, I was like, ‘Well, that’s a perfect coverup for a heist!’”

Kaleidoscope offers viewers a ‘unique immersive experience’ – so you can start with the episode Yellow, while others may choose to kick off with Green, but don’t worry, it will still make sense.

Executive producer Russell Fine said: “When you watch Kaleidoscope, all the information is there to be able to connect the dots and know the story.”

The eight-episodes span from 24 years before the heist to six months after, so depending on which episode you watch, you’ll be jumping into the crime at a different point in time.

Garcia added: “Being able to move around and watch different orders gives you a different viewpoint on the characters. There are questions that are going to be asked in one episode that are answered in another episode.

“Similarly, there’ll be answers in an episode that you’re watching that you don’t even know are answers to something until you see the question when you watch another episode.”

The series stars Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito, Paz Vega, Rufus Sewell, Tati Gabrielle, Peter Mark Kendall, Rosaline Elbay, Jai Courtney, Niousha Noor, Jordan Mendoza, Soojeong Son and Hemky Madera.

But with a 45 percent audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, it suggests that you’ll either love the series or absolutely hate it.

So if you want to find out for yourself, Kaleidoscope is available to watch on Netflix now.
