A story about how stupid people can be when they gather together and have one mind for everybody
1 June 2019 | by 3Lina3See all my reviews

It was a nice episode. I've only seen some episodes of the 2nd season so I can't say if the show has become worse or not, but this one was something I liked. Yes, there was some absurdity in this one too, but now it was used to tell the idea. And I must say, the setting of this episode is very refreshing because usually they shoot movies and shows about nobility, but stories that center peasants or poor people can be just as interesting if not more. The setting was visually pleasing too. But when it comes to visuals, I'd like it more if it was looking more historically accurate and less polished. It would be so much more interesting to watch if most of the cast was looking like what the characters would look like in real life back then. Tired of seeing the faces of a few same types of people's looks.

Kudos to creators of this episode for revising the history and for their attempt to rehabilitate those who were called ''witches''.
