very interesting how everyone gave it 10 or 9 still IMDb gave it less than 5
23 June 2017 | by faresalandlosSee all my reviews

it's a big shame that IMDb giving it less than 5 stars most probably by voters who didn't even watch it!

anyway this TV series is one of the best TV series i ever seen, and i have seen most famous big American ones and the silly ones too, PB, Lost, Friends, BB, Grey's anatomy, GOT, penny dreadful and many others!

and this is as strong as the strongest, very interesting full of Drama and history and some action, you finish one episode and you really want to watch the next one badly
