The Lazarus Project on OCS: the spy stuck in an endless apocalypse


This British fantasy thriller questions the emotional cost of time travel. An atypical and existential fable.

In the comedy

Groundhog Day

, the adventures of Bill Murray, who kept reliving the same day over and over again until he won Andie MacDowell's heart and repaired all the wrongs committed, gave rise to a smile.

But reliving the same event over and over again can be a terrible curse, objects the British thriller

The Lazarus Project.

To discover this Sunday evening on OCS Pulp and in full on OCS on demand.

A rather reverent London developer, George is recruited by the Lazarus Project.

This secret organization travels back in time when the world is on the brink of World War III or mass extinction.

Its members are the only ones who remember events undone by their time loop.

Time Travel Renegade

The success of a mission leads them to relive the same traumas and disasters.

For example, witnessing, until we manage to prevent it, the outbreak of a nuclear war.

The consequences can also be much more intimate.

Can we endure repeatedly giving birth to a child that we will not see grow up if the clock keeps going back months?

The resilience of the agents of the Lazarus Project, who do not know who is behind their technology, is severely tested.

Not everyone has the same level of resistance and dedication.

In defiance of the rules, George (Paapa Essiedu,

Gangs of London

) will become, like other colleagues, a renegade.

The developer will seek to save his fiancée by manipulating the news and siding with the terrorists.

A fairly intelligent existentialist action thriller, this series with a good dose of dark humor demystifies the fantasy of time travel.

It is never good to want to play the demiurges to try to rectify the past, as dark as it is.
