Default Counterpart (Staring J.K Simmons)



The espionage thriller follows a man named Howard Silk (Simmons), a lowly cog in the bureaucratic machinery of a Berlin-based UN spy agency. When Howard discovers that his organization safeguards the secret of a crossing into a parallel dimension, he is thrust into a shadow world of intrigue, danger, and double cross. The only man he can trust is "Prime," also played by Simmons, Howard's near-identical counterpart from this parallel world.

Cool idea. Not much to go on so far (that teaser was very much a teaser).

I found the first episode a little boring if I'm honest. It felt mostly like set up. Laying out the premise and main characters.

The premise is interesting. It is a Berlin Cold War espionage story with the added twist of the Cold War being between two parallel Earths and exploring identity with duplicates of people on either side.
