Quotes

Blanca Rodriguez: Do you know what the greatest pain a person can feel is? The greatest tragedy a life can experience? It is having a truth inside of you and you not being able to share it. It is having a great beauty, and no one there to see it. This young boy has been discarded, and he is so young; he believes that it has something to do with who he is. It's like cancer. It is going to eat at him from the inside until he starts to resent even the best parts of himself.

Thinking this is the best show ever

This pilot was so mesmerizing. Everything about it is utterly beautiful: the cinematography, the culture, the time period, the world I knew nothing about...I've been captured. I was in tears by the ending and I'm not usually emotionally gripped by a show like that.
