User Reviews

 
Weird, with a VERY disapointing ending. (apart from that observation, no spoilers)
23 October 2018 | by temporary_email_addressSee all my reviews

The good... The acting, and casting was very good, and the sets costumes etc, all top notch.

The Bad... But it is one of those stories that leaves threads unfulfilled.

And characters that you want to see what happened to them extremely irritatingly untold, and incomplete.

Also some "happenings" are frankly just stupid. And distasteful, just for the sake of it.

And as aforementioned, a VERY weird, and disappointing. (in every sense) ending.
