Kaleidoscope wouldn't normally be my thing but I began to watch it anyway.

Firstly, it is a heist story - Ocean's Eleven meets Reservoir Dogs.

Secondly, the episodes don't have numbers but colours and can be supposedly watched in any order. I must have said here before, how I hate flashbacks and flash-forwards, and like my linear story-telling, so this is my worst nightmare! However, I do admire the concept. So, you have eight episodes + an introduction to explain, which allows you to to watch the eight episodes in 40,320 random ways. The heist itself is the white episode. The other episodes are set before, long before, and after the heist, but the white episode is suggested to be watched last, because puzzles are set up and White will explain what happens in other episodes. I found that after my first episode (Green) I did get interested in the characters and what was going to happen, had happened, and I watched the whole series over three days. I won't spoil it for you, but I did guess most of the puzzles, except what was left in the vault. Where the bonds went to and who took them was fairly easy to work out. There are plenty of clues.

The chronological order would be: Violet, Green, Yellow, Orange, Blue, White, Red, Pink. Don't watch Pink first. More here: Kaleidoscope: the Netflix heist show you can watch in any order you like

I enjoyed it. I can see how they could be watched in any order (apart from white). It was nice to see a heist told in a slightly different way. I would re watch it, but would have to be in a different order just to see.
