Decent but not hooked yet.
11 February 2020 | by lillydav10See all my reviews

So far it's okay, but I'm far from being hooked just yet. Bit slow and drawn out in places and I found my mind wandering, which when I am enjoying a show or film it wouldn't normally be doing. Let's check out episode 2 🙂
