it's about the characters, not about the actors
15 December 2017 | by Thomas001See all my reviews

I always dislike when reviewers refer to actors' names instead of the character names. It's like they are buddies on first name bases. This show received two reviews of that style. Current political bias in one review was actually quite annoying. The show itself was a good one, admittedly on a weak foundation, but they worked it out. Yes, the good guys won in the end, and I was glad. Good entertainment.
