The Entire History of You In this family drama, people can re-watch their memories and show it to others through a device. The story focus on the obsession of a man, who uses the memory-viewer, to find out if his girlfriend cheated on him.

Overall, this is a clever and well written show, an anthology in the vein of The Twilight Zone and an amazing satire on today’s society.
Do not miss this real dark and twisted vision of our world.
