Netflix is breaking all the rules. The streaming service has revealed that viewers can turn its new Kaleidoscope series into a Quentin Tarantino film by watching it in a certain order.
The new TV series has been written so that it can be watched in various ways, with each episode featuring a colour-coded title for ease. According to Netflix, when watched in a specific order, the series unfolds like a film by Quentin Tarantino.
Netflix’s social media team recently explained how to watch the program “as a Tarantino film”, giving the following episode order: blue, green, yellow, orange, violet, pink, white, and red.
Kaleidoscope is an anthology series focusing on a crew of master thieves as they attempt to plan and pull off the heist to end all heists. “Every episode reveals a piece of an elaborate puzzle of corruption, greed, vengeance, scheming, loyalties and betrayals,” the show synopsis reads. “How did the crew of thieves plan it? Who gets away with it? Who can be trusted?”
When watched in this order, Netflix says, Kaleidoscope takes on the structure and mood of classic Tarantino crime thrillers like Pulp Fiction or Reservoir Dogs. The series stars Giancarlo Esposito, Tati Gabrielle, Jai Courtney, Rosaline Elbay, Paz Vega, and Jordan Mendoza.
Viewers can also watch the series in the style of Orange Is The New Black or an Agatha Christie-style “classic detective story.” If you’re hoping to watch the series in its original chronological order, there’s a colour code key for that too.
