The idea of the series is quite fresh and original. The scene is paradise, presented in the form of a huge celestial corporation with a bunch of departments and departments in which angels work. At the head of all this is God (Steve Buscemi), and he ... an absolute idiot.

Once he realized that the Earth is not such a successful project, and decided to end this business in one fell swoop, arranging a global apocalypse. One of the angels, Craig (Daniel Radcliffe), who works in the Prayer Processing Department, along with his new assistant, intends to do everything to prevent a catastrophe and save humanity.

A fresh mini-series, interestingly practicing the theme of the time loop, will surely appeal to all lovers of Groundhog Day. Written and shot by a female team (Natasha Lyon, who played a major role, also participated in the creation of the series and the writing of some series), it is made with mind and soul. It takes only 4 hours to watch the whole thing, and you will most likely do it in one go.
In the first episode, 36-year-old Nadia dies right on her birthday, falling under the wheels of a taxi, and the very next second she is again in her bathroom in front of the mirror, where she was a couple of hours ago. But the fact that she survived does not mean that she will not die again, and again, and again ... And each time in different ways, despite attempts to at least do something to avoid death and break out of the temporary loop.
The insanely charismatic heroine breathes life into the same situations of endless deaths and rebirths, not allowing the viewer to get bored. The narrative raises important questions and makes you think about the value of life and people nearby.
