The Peripheral (season 1)

{5/5} “The only limit is one’s imagination… and morals, I suppose.”

The Peripheral season 1, aired in 2022

Flynne needs money for her mom’s medication so she tries a new virtual reality system that her brother says will make them lots of money. It feels just like being there. She enjoys the first session, but the second is very unpleasant — her avatar is killed. She vows never to use it again. Then someone contacts her and tells her the situation is not what she thinks — and the only way they can help her is if she goes back in.

This show is based on a book by William Gibson (Burning Chrome).

It’s about what happens when you get involved with people from the future. It has an intriguing mystery and fantastic characters.

I like how the mother tells a murderer that he should die instead of her children.

There are only 8 episodes. It comes to a sort of mini-conclusion, but I would really like to have a season 2. There’s a post-credits scene after the season finale.

The mysterious music is by Mark Korven.

Stars Chloƫ Grace Moretz, Jack Reynor, and Gary Carr.

Created by Scott B. Smith (writer on the movie A Simple Plan).

  1. Dave Switzer Says:

    The show has been cancelled by Amazon, which is a bit odd since they had already given the green light to season 2.
