Topic will air the series in USA
currently airing in Germany on Fox, and will air on HBO Max in South America and SBS in Australia. January 1959, Soviet Union. In the icy Ural Mountains, a group of nine students sets out on a ski trek. Even though they all are well experienced hikers, they never reach their destination. As their bodies turn up a month later, it leaves local investigators puzzled. Their tent was cut open from the inside, they are found frozen stiff in their underwear spread around the camp, some are even partially mangled. Whom or what did they run from? Why did they die, and how? When Oleg (Egor Beroev), a KGB major, arrives in the province, his inquiry is to be held strictly confidential. Troubled by his past as a WWII veteran, he has a sixth sense and death seems to follow him around

as he digs deeper into the mysterious incident. With the help of Katya, the local medical examiner, Oleg is hell-bent on finding the truth. But the more he learns, the more it becomes clear: The reason the students died will never see the light of day. No one can ever know what really happened. No one. Except him.

  1. I hope Our House doesn't turn out like The Sixth Sense where she's dead and she's watching life change before her eyes and is helpless to do anything about it.

    1. I think it sounds very similar to Keeley Hawes' FINDING ALICE in a way. I do love Martin and Penry, but cannot really stand Tuppence, she is such a bad actress.

  2. I would give Our House a try, but it sounds like it can be a little confusing if not done right.

    1. But just imagine losing your house like that! Jeepers creepers.

    2. Did you watch the Liam Neeson movie where he gets into a car accident and loses some of his memory? Suddenly his wife doesn't know him and another man took over his identity. Just watching that gave me anxiety! A little different, but a similar idea.

    3. I don't do Liam LOL I don't know why, just never liked him much. I like him even less now that he is pushing his son onto us, I hate nepotism with passion.

  4. Por years I've been wanting to see a film about what happened in Dyatlov Pass. I'm so glad it's Russian made. I didn't know Topic had series.

  5. I always like Rupert Penry! Dead Mountain seems very good too. We are watching Bodyguard (played with Richard Madden and Keeley Hawes) these days...

    1. We do ever so adore him, even though he got quite old now. I only wish he would be getting leading roles instead of supporting ones, especially as he is a better actor than Compston, whom we also like.
