Series: Bodies on Netflix

Bodies, 2023 – IMDB – (4/5*)

Enjoyed the sci-if/crime drama/mystery combo here. Terrific job weaving the various timelines together. Compelling and engaging enough that we watched all 8 episodes over 4 nights and couldn’t wait to see how it ended. Every night we turned to each other to say how much we hoped the ending would hold together and it did, sort of.

Without giving any spoilers, the slightly dissapointing element here was the “bootstrapping” paradox. Meaning, when did the loop with Elias/Harker first start. I understand that asking where the loop begins is like asking: what came first, the chicken or the egg? But still, the fact that it wasn’t addressed at all felt slightly unresolved.

The sub-plot of persecuted or shunned people as sources of loving-kindness in the world provided good symmetry across the time periods.
