A ghost story that slowly evolves into a compelling sci-fi, Mirrors is a limited series that tells the story of three women across different times and places who are connected through strange sightings. While things start spooky it doesn’t stay in that camp too long. That’s no knock against it as some pretty great sci-fi emerges. Taking some unexpected turns while keeping its mystery going, we do get answers at a good pace while more questions arise until its resolution, which left me well satisfied. Despite a suitably low key sound design and a relatively large array of characters. Mirrors is able to funnel a big story through just three narrators. Some performances are stronger than others; however, its well-paced plot and each character’s definitive arc more than compensate as it shoulders some wondrous ideas, and heartfelt themes on a fresh and clever premise.
