This Is Not My Life is a thrilling sci-fi drama series that tells the story of Alec Ross, a successful and ambitious marketing executive who wakes up one day to find himself in a small, isolated town called Waimoana. To his horror, he realizes that he has no memory of how he got there, who he is, or what his life was like before the mysterious fisherman, Jack, found him washed up on the beach.

Set in a dystopian alternative reality, This Is Not My Life explores the ramifications of a world where individual freedoms are sacrificed in exchange for societal stability and order. In this world, people are born into predetermined roles and are strictly monitored and controlled by a powerful corporation called Vexcor. Alec's arrival in Waimoana is no accident, and he soon discovers that he has been deliberately erased from his previous life as part of an experiment in mind control.

As Alec struggles to piece together his past and come to terms with his new identity, he begins to uncover the dark secrets of Vexcor's operations and the true nature of the town's inhabitants. Along the way, he encounters a cast of complex and fascinating characters, including his loving and supportive wife, Sophia; the enigmatic and dangerous local doctor, Anya; and the ambitious and ruthless Vexcor agent, David.

Throughout the series, Alec is forced to confront his own beliefs, values, and identity as he navigates the murky waters of Waimoana's political and social hierarchies. He quickly learns that in this world, trust must be earned and that his allies and enemies may not be who they seem.

The show's excellent cast is led by the talented Tandi Wright, who delivers a captivating performance as Sophia, Alec's supportive and loving wife. Tania Nolan and Charles Mesure are equally impressive as Anya and David, respectively, bringing a depth and complexity to their characters that keeps viewers guessing until the very end. John Bach also shines as Jack, the town's enigmatic fisherman who may hold the key to unlocking Alec's past.

One of the highlights of This Is Not My Life is its stunning visuals and atmospheric soundtrack, which create a haunting and suspenseful mood that perfectly matches the show's themes of identity, control, and freedom. The show's use of location and cinematography is particularly impressive, with the stunning New Zealand landscapes providing the perfect backdrop for the town's eerie and claustrophobic feel.

Overall, This Is Not My Life is a must-see for fans of sci-fi and dystopian storytelling. With its engaging storyline, complex characters, and stunning visuals, it is a gripping and thought-provoking series that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats from start to finish.
