The new Netflix crime show Kaleidoscope has eight episodes. Right after the introductory video, however, it quickly becomes clear that there is no fixed order in which you have to watch the show. You are free to choose which episode you want to start with and which you want to end with.

If you do the math, then you quickly realize that that's an absurd number of 40,320 ways you can watch the show. So that you don't have to rewatch the show a million times to figure out the best order for Kaleidoscope, here are the four best options.

The Best Order For Kaleidoscope

Possibility 1: 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

Of course, this is the most unspectacular of all solutions. But for those who like it down-to-earth and well-ordered, this is the best option. And an advantage is that you don't have to watch all the episodes at a time to keep track. A very good solution to look Kaleidoscope, though not the best.

Possibility 2: Backwards

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

What we all want to do is probably the most sensible thing here. Just watch the end first, without missing out on all the fun. The show is designed in such a way that it still makes sense to watch the remaining episodes. So, for those of you who always want to know how it ends, just watch it backwards. Even backwards the show is still filled with tension, but you'll at least watch without too many questions.

If you're ready with Kaleidoscope, you can have a lot of fun with the Nintendo Switch.


Possibility 3: The Best Comes Last

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

Okay, the order is getting a little more confusing now, but that isn't a bad thing. You start with the day after and are drawn directly into the action. Afterwards, you get to know all the characters and connections while the tension remains high. You then end with the episode before Day X and conclude the series with the climax. This variant is for people who want to stay captivated until the end and watch the show with full attention. A really entertaining variant.

Possibility 4: The Best Order

  • '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

That's probably the version the show would have released if it didn't have this unique 'watch whatever order you want' feature. This is the usual pattern of a show, and there are also reasons for that. It's the easiest to watch in this order, because everything is consistent. You don't feel like something doesn't fit together. So if you don't want to experiment, this is the best and most exciting way to watch Kaleidoscope.


All in all, it should be said here that there isn't a right or wrong order. The show is fun no matter which episode you watch first. And the fact that there is the feature is pretty nice.
