Good job Disney
I don't understand why there has been so little promotion for this show. It just appeared one day on Disney Plus. Based on the poster It didn't look like it would be for me, but as often happens I had run out of new and interesting things to watch on streaming. So before giving up and watching another Danish crime drama I figured I give it a shot, besides Disney plus looks good on my O. L. E. D. I am so glad I did. This show absolutely reminds me of netflix's "A serious of unfortunate events", another show I enjoyed. As with the best juvenile fiction this new Disney plus show is smart and doesn't condescend. The whole cast is fantastic, but I have to single out the character of Constance Contraire. She is my hands down fave. Often delivering the best one liners and sarcastic quips in her awesome accent that reminds me of the German Ambassador character from the old "The Colbert report". At first I didn't know what to make of her, or the show for that matter, but as I watched it captured my imagination and attention. Everyone is doing a great job with their parts but Marta (Timofeeva) Kessler is knocking it out of the park. Can't wait to watch the next one and see what happens! My only real criticism is the pacing. This show like so many others on the streaming services (looking at you Netflix) seem to stretch out the content in order to come up with a particular number of episodes. I can't say how many times I heard my friends, family and others say "Yes I watched it put it was about one or two episodes to long". This is probably a phenomenon that is sadly here to stay. In the case of this show It just feels like the pacing is slower then it should be. Having said all that it's absolutely worth the wait.
