Netflix has shared the best ways to watch its intriguing new heist series Kaleidoscope, which can be watched in a whopping 40,000 ways.
A synopsis for Kaleidoscope, which stars Giancarlo Esposito, Paz Vega, Rufus Sewell and Tati Gabrielle, teases: “A master thief and his crew attempt an epic and elaborate heist worth $7 billion dollars — but betrayal, greed and other threats undermine their plans.”
And while that all sounds interesting enough, what gives the show an extra edge is the fact you can watch the episodes in any order you fancy and the story will still make sense.
Netflix explains that the show ‘takes a non-linear approach to storytelling, building intrigue and suspense uniquely, with Netflix members each having a different immersive viewing experience’.
Adding: "All viewers will eventually see all episodes, but the order in which they watch the episodes will affect their viewpoint on the story, the characters, and the questions and answers at the heart of the heist.” Clever, right?
All episodes are named after colours, so you might choose to watch Green, then Yellow and onto Blue etc.
And the eight-episodes span from 24 years before the heist to six months after, which each episode set in a different place in time.
But if you don’t fancy having to choose your own episodes, Netflix recently took to Instagram to share some interesting sequence options for viewers.
Firstly, if you want to watch the show in chronological order - so you’re following events as they happened then you’ll need to watch them as follows:
Violet: set 24 years before the heist.
Green: set seven years before the heist.
Yellow: set six weeks before the heist.
Orange: set three weeks before the heist.
Blue: set five days before the heist.
White: set during the heist.
Red: set the morning after the heist.
Pink: set six months after the heist.
If you want to watch them in the order Netflix put them on the streaming service then you’d go: Yellow, Green, Blue, Violet, Orange, Red, Pink, White.
If you fancy watching Kaleidoscope in the style of a ‘classic detective’ series, then you should choose: Orange, Green, Violet, Red, Yellow, Blue, White, Pink.
To give the series a Quentin Tarantino style twist, then you can order the episodes: Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Violet, Pink, White, Red.
And if you just want to watch them in the order of the rainbow then that’s: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Violet, Pink, White.
