How to watch 'Kaleidoscope' episodes in the chronological order
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Netflix has a knack for treating viewers with unique content and recently came out with a series that could be a game-changer in the world of streaming titles. The streaming platform took the world by storm with ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’ which allowed the viewers to choose what the main character should do in the upcoming scene and the choice made by the viewers will decide how his journey will end. However, Netflix has now upped the game with its latest series ‘Kaleidoscope’ and is giving viewers a chance to watch the series in any order possible.
Yes, you heard it right. You can watch the show in the order that you want and decide how you want the series to be concluded. Before moving ahead with the story, let’s take a look at what ‘Kaleidoscope’ is all about. So, ‘Kaleidoscope’ is a heist series that primarily focuses on the life of a master thief named Leo Pap (Giancarlo Esposito) and his team of criminals. However, this story is a long one because it spans 25 years – from 24 years before the heist to six months after it. The team is now planning to rob the most secure vault on the East Coast of the US and it’s probably the most difficult heist of his life. Leo has done a lot of robberies, but this is the biggest one of his life and the primary motive is not just about getting filthy rich. He’s doing this to get revenge on someone who betrayed him years ago.
So, if you are interested in watching the intriguing series, you should realize that there’s no particular order in which you can see the show. The episodes are not numbered but are instead assigned color. Netflix is claiming that the episodes are being assigned in random order to the viewers and, to be honest, the claim is actually true because when we tried with our friends, we all received episodes in random order.
Each episode is named after a color and contains a story that leads up to the finale. The colors used for the first seven episodes of the series are ‘Yellow’, ‘Green’, ‘Violet’, ‘Blue’, ‘Orange’, ‘Red’, and ‘Pink’. Meanwhile, the finale has been given the color ‘White’. Out of 8, the first seven episodes can be seen in any order and ‘White’ is the only episode that the creators have considered to be the final one. So, they expect viewers to watch last.
All the episodes are now available to watch on Netflix and after seeing the series closely, we’ve finally figured out what’s the correct order to protect it. Yes, it took a lot of time to come out with this outcome, but if you are confused and want to follow the story since the beginning then you should watch the series in chronological order, here’s the official timeline:
1) “Violet” – The episode is set 24 years before the final heist
2) “Green” – This episode is set 7 years before the heist
3) “Yellow” – This episode is set 6 weeks before the heist
4) “Orange” – This episode is set 3 weeks before the heist
5) “Blue” - This episode is set 5 days before the heist
6) “White” – This episode is set on the day of the heist
7) “Red” – This episode is set the morning after the heist
8) “Pink” – This episode is set 6 months after the heist
Now, even though Netflix wants “White” to be the last episode if anyone wants to follow the story as it happens, then the order mentioned above should be the apt one.
But if you want to have fun, you can watch the series in the order that Netflix has assigned them to you because the series is quite intriguing and the amazing cast will keep you on the edge of your seats.
Apart from Esposito, the series includes actors such as Rufus Sewell, Paz Vega, Rosaline Elbay, Jai Courtney, Tati Gabrielle, and Peter Mark Kendall.
‘Kaleidoscope’ is now available for streaming on Netflix.
