Storyline

Counterpart is about a mysterious world hidden beneath the surface of our everyday existence. Howard Silk is a lowly cog in the bureaucratic machinery of a Berlin-based United Nations spy agency. When Howard discovers that his organization safeguards the secret of a crossing into a parallel dimension, he is thrust into a shadow world of intrigue, danger, and double cross - where the only man he can trust is his near-identical counterpart from this parallel world. The show explores themes of identity, fate and lost love, posing the eternal question, "what if our lives could have been different?" Written by ahmetkozan

Trivia

Opening sequence sees reference to black and white 'stones' from the popular board game Go. It is the same game that Howard and Andrei play. The game is popular for having the most number of alternative combinations for a move (2x10^170), while an opponent tries to occupy more territory on a board than their competitor. See more »

Can only be rated as EXCELLENT!
10 April 2018 | by ernaveganteSee all my reviews

I am 5 minutes of finishing the 10th episode and after nine and a half episodes can only rate the series as EXCELLENT. Actors are brilliant, plot is interesting. Acting by JK Simmons is a masterpiece!
