Amazon reviewer Ariel Rose says, “This was amazing. Absolutely amazing. Chrome emerges from a cranked dystopian world as a compelling protagonist who stands to fight! She is the oppressed, a robot slave hunted for running. And she does not put up with being treated cruelly. I watched episode 1 over and over. Every scene is a comic book gem.”

“Chrome: The Series is like five movies in one,” explains producer Susan Goforth, “Each episode or chapter is so chock full of excitement and story it begs you to watch it again and again. We purposefully went against the old custom of releasing an entire season in one day in order to allow our scifi, cyberpunk, fantasy, female superhero fans time to watch and re-watch, discuss, digest and anticipate the upcoming episode. It’s a living comic book decades in the making and its time is now.”
