Long and drawn out...
13 June 2019 | by pntmarkSee all my reviews

The story itself is great but there are some things that shouldn't be drawn out into a series or "season". This story could have been told in 90 - 120 minutes.

They've drawn this out into a number of episodes which, by the time the second episode is done, feels like it's dragging.... I stopped watching.

Dragging....
