The story is fresh and catchy but i had a trouble digesting the accent of Diego Luna and the unconvincing performance of Novakovic !!!
12 August 2015 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

The story is genuine and brought out to a new style yet the execution is still on the range of every show i'v seen talking about that era of time .. the script seems to be good ,, but there are this 10 minutes where you feel the scenario goes slow and unnecessary but it seems like the rules of Amazon prevent the show from having less than 55 continuous minutes of script !!?

Stu Zicherman is a good writer and familiar with thrill as he wrote a couple of exciting episodes of the Hit spies series "The Americans" but again i really hope they work a bit more on the screenplay as it needs a bit of trimming ;)

The casting was not a wowzer .. i think they casted Diego Luna cuz he get paid less than other choices ,, and i really wished he had a British accent as it would seems more appealing to the ears even if Casanova was Italian ,, i mean look at "The Musketeers" on BBC or "Da Vinci's Demons" on starz casting Tom Riley ,, same Italian look but with more charming accent the face of Diego Luna is perfect and his performance was okay but again the voice matters too .. also Bojana Novakovic is not that wonderful actress ,, i think they missed in this part of the Show ...

Overall, the story is fresh and catchy but the cast doesn't really intrigue you into keep on watching more or at most into waiting for the next scene to come.
