Unseen is a South African series created by Travis Taute and Daryne Joshua starring Gail Mabalane and Brendon Daniels.
About the Series
Unseen is an interesting South African series that behaves like a classic thriller, but with a realistic tone: it’s a tale full of mysteries where everything revolves around a protagonist who, on going to pick up her husband from prison, it turns out that he is simply not there.
There begins a plot that will lead her through criminal organizations and into the underworld, the descent into hell of a woman full of goodness, a cleaner, who is forced to become a murderess due to circumstance.
Entertaining, well paced, with the impediment of the production. This is not Revenge (the one with Emily VanCamp) nor are we in the Hamptons. Here we travel to a world that, with no pretences, spreads out its nets in the thick of night, so present throughout the series.
An opportunity to immerse ourselves in a real world, sometimes too much so, of this story that knows how to carry a thriller and dot another ‘i’ of the booming South African film industry, which keeps getting better with each day that passes.
Not that it’s the best series we can see nowadays, but it is a welcome attempt to move to a more realistic thriller with believable characters.
