Deeply engaging and profound
26 September 2019 | by Mr_MasterjonesSee all my reviews

I've never really writed a review for an episode of tv series that I've never fully watched tho I've seen some excellent episodes on other shows before but this particular episode of the series was something exceptional and peculiar to me.

This show its definitely goes beyond my expectation. Before watch the series, because of the cast and its unique story, I knew this must be something that I'm interested in but didn't think its become one of my most favorite tv shows.

The whole series its something much more of what it seems, has so many important message and topics to discuss and all of it in a well-crafted, strong structured and well written story and magnificent Visualization.

Acting at its very best, writing is just mind blowing, the end scene of this episode by far was one of the best and meaningful ending I've ever watched in a long time. The great and well received concept of this whole episode its remain to fully comprehend and understand...

This just was an easy 10 of 10 and don't know what else can I say and really at this moment cant !!!!
