27 April 2018 | by klpd-38307See all my reviews

Watched all four episodes in one sitting. After the strangeness of the twin cities concept goes away it was entertaining, a little slow but that makes a change from all the wham bam tripe that gets forced upon us as trendy. I swear as much as the next non pc person but for some reason writers today feel they have to someone f'ing and blinding as part of every sentence in every show; having women do it seems to be even more enticing for them. Don't agree but whatever. I started to think cities thing may be a take on Palestine and Israel, ancient & modern, without the intercity conflict but maybe just writers original creativity I think it is a worthwhile watch. Enjoy
