Relief
7 December 2019 | by joergwohdeSee all my reviews

After trying to find a good watch for Christmas, this is, after the usual US cliche bs which made nearly my eyes fall out from all the eyerolling, finally a nice little series with believable and likeable characters and story.

Yes it's possible, a good story without time traveling knights and laughtracks.

Thank you Norway.
