Fantastic
20 March 2017 | by naximuzSee all my reviews

This was a fantastic pilot with great acting. I stumbled across this show not knowing what I was getting into and was surprised by the quality.

The cinematography, the writing, the acting, the color setting, the plot, everything was exceptional.

I really hope Amazon makes this one of their prime series. I was perhaps even more impressed by this one than the Man in the High Castle pilot.
