I disagree with removal of Narration.
30 October 2018 | by pookiainSee all my reviews

Aron's Narration brought to show more than just drama, it was like a watching history happen. The haunting music in season one gave a more "how do I say it, a lore like feeling". Now the same data is displayed as text in the show.. I would have loved the narration. But many don't like it.. I can see why, they want to be there in midst of lore rather than being told about it.. I still like this Show and series, Just miss some of the Narration..
