Inked: Why Sky's bittersweet Mandarin dramedy fully deserves its Prime time-slot

James Croot

REVIEW: The first NZ On Air-funded project predominantly in Mandarin is a winning Kiwi dramedy that deserves to find a wide audience.

Screening to coincide with the current NZ Chinese Language Week, Inked (debuting tonight on Prime at 9.40pm, before hitting Neon on October 7) is the story of Jiayue (Lisa Zhang), a young Aucklander facing an early quarter-life crisis.

Originally conceived as eight, bite-size 15-minute instalments, like last year’s lockdown tale INSiDE, it is now being broadcast as a single package.
