Counterpart is a series on Prime Video. It’s classified as a Science Fiction Suspense Drama. Whatever they classify it, it is really good.
J.K. Simmons plays a double role as Howard Silk, in this world, and in a parallel world. On one world, Howard is just a simple, uninteresting, desk clerk in a big, bureaucratic agency with his beloved wife in a coma from being run down in the street.
In the alternate world, Howard is an agent in the same bureaucratic agency that hops between the two worlds. And his wife is his ex-wife and also an agent.
The plain simple Howard is a good man, loyal and dependable. Agent-man Howard sends Plain Howard to the alternate world so he can stay in his world and investigate some strange happenings in strategy counter-intelligence.
Lots of twists and turns and some incredible acting by J.K. Simmons and others complement a well-written script. Season One is on Prime Video now.
