I’ve gotten hooked recently on a new TV show on Space called
It touts itself as “SF Noir”, a lÃ Blade Runner.
In fact, it borrows more than just its sense of style from Blade Runner.
Chalie Jade is about a private detective who lives in a bleak, futurisitc world
where companies run the government, and the sky is filled with pollution, night and day.
Literally, a dark world.
An act of sabotage causes an industrial accident at the site of a super-scientific lab run by the world’s biggest corporation.
The accident throws Charlie Jade out of his world (the “Alphaverse”) and into ours (the “Betaverse”).
At the same time, one of the saboteurs is also thrown from their world (the “Gammaverse”) into ours.
Parallel universes, each very different and yet having certain basic things (and a few people) in common.
