Do you despise the concept of innovative and immersive television programs and wish for the tale to be told in a monotonous linear projectile? Well, you should probably look into that, and you’ll dislike both Knives Out flicks, but we’re here to help.
Except for the conclusion, Netflix’s Kaleidoscope is a heist series with a twist: not only are the episodes out of chronological sequence, but the streaming site claims to offer “randomly” ordered episodes. It is not quite as interactive as Black Mirror: Bandersnatch or Unbreakable on Netflix. The fun of Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy vs. The Reverend lies in the order in which you view the series.
Kaleidoscope, written by Eric Garcia, centers on one large theft by master thief Leo Pap (Giancarlo Esposito) and his band of crooks, but it covers 25 years, from 24 years before the robbery to six months following. What exactly are we stealing?
Only the most secure vault on the East Coast of the United States, which required a rush of jobs to complete. Moreover, the objective is not just financial gain, but also retribution.
According to Netflix, the series is “loosely inspired” by the unusual case of the stock and bond certificates that were supposedly destroyed by Hurricane Sandy in 2012 while languishing in an underground Wall Street vault.
Each episode is named after a different color (“Yellow”, “Green”, “Violet”, “Blue”, “Orange”, “Red”, “Pink”, and the finale, “White”, which the creators hope you’ll watch last regardless) and introduces a new aspect of the plot, such as a character’s backstory, a small reference, or the heist’s planning. All episodes are accessible, but the order in which you view them (or the order in which Netflix serves them to you) may change.
Kaleidoscope Chronological Order
- “Violet” (24 years before heist)
- “Green” (7 years before heist)
- “Yellow” (6 weeks before heist)
- “Orange” (3 weeks before heist)
- “Blue” (5 days before heist)
- “White” (Heist day)
- “Red” (1 day after heist)
- “Pink” (6 months after heist)
