Kaleidoscope is a heist drama released on Netflix with an innovative format. Every user gets a different episode order at random, making every experience unique.

Kaleidoscope is an anthology released on January 1, 2023. The show has eight episodes, each one titled after a color. The show stars Giancarlo Esposito as Ray Vernon, a career criminal and heist leader. Other cast members include Suicide Squad’s Jai Courtney and Tati Gabrielle from Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and the upcoming Mortal Kombat sequel.

Kaleidoscope episode order

Each user gets a different episode order that they could choose to watch or skip. One thing is consistent, Black is the first episode since it explains the concept of the show, and White is the last. It is a general consensus that White should be the last because, in this episode, the viewer gets most of the answers, of course, not all orders respect this rule.

The first possible watch order is in chronological order:

  • Violet – 24 years before
  • Green – 7 years before
  • Yellow – 6 weeks before
  • Orange – 3 weeks before
  • Blue – 5 days before
  • White – Day X
  • Red – The day after
  • Pink – 6 months later

According to some viewers, there is a “best order” to watch the show with White as the final episode:

  • Yellow – 6 weeks before
  • Violet – 24 years before
  • Orange – 3 weeks before
  • Green – 7 years before
  • Blue – 5 days before
  • Red – The day after
  • Pink – 6 months later
  • White – Day X

While the concept is innovative, it wasn’t enough to gather positive reviews. Some viewers considered that its format is just a gimmick to distract users from the real issues in the show. Inconsistent storylines, poorly developed characters, and poor editing are some of the complaints from viewers.
