Netflix unleashed it's new intense, adult ice skating drama on January 1st. One of my favourite actresses Kaya Scodelario of Crawl and best known from Skins stars as Kat a bi polar champion figure skater who suffered some trauma when she cracked her skull open while doing a new move.
As the drama unfolds we are introduced to an array of well written characters including her best friend Jenn. All of them have stories and struggles and the world is explored in a unique way.
Theres also the struggles of bi polar, secret love stories, class and race struggles and more. I won't say too much because I don't wanna give anything away. But if it seems like it might interest you it's a really intriguing show and although not perfect, one I really wanna see continue.
Nice to watch a drama that succeeds although tackling some serious life issues. Yes it is formulaic in it's storyline, but aren't all these dramas.
The link to ice skating gives it extra appeal even for someone like me who hasn't really had an interest since Torvill and Dean back in the day. (I did see them live in a panto some years back also!)
Very good watch.
MGN Rating 7/10
