science fiction romance, plot twist, disturbing books

I definitely rate this miniseries a 5 star! The casting of actors is simply superb! The plot and content itself are so suspenseful and creative. Then, Tom Bateman who plays David is so drop dead gorgeous until it is unbelievable. Adele dresses simply beautifully like the old time movie stars which reminds me of the way I love to dress; I'm from B'ham, Alabama, and we females love to dress beautifully at all times.
