People are looking for new, fresh things to watch as the new year begins. One hot trend
right now is Kaleidoscope. Reaching Netflix’s number 1 show on their top 10 list, Kaleidoscope
is a limited series that features the story of a grand heist and how the plan came together. Here’s

watching! It's a great show, and I would recommend it to anyone who loves puzzle shows. But
don’t take my word for it. Go give it a try!
