User Reviews

Hate the female lead.
21 October 2019 | by berg-74532See all my reviews

The lead character is incredibly annoying. The entire first episode is her telling everyone else how stupid everyone else is and that everyone regardless of knowing the situation must defer to her. Now on its own that's fine but time and time again she and her views on the people and village are continually shown to be wrong. She is the only thing that will stop me from watching. I get she's a doctor and the savior complex is inbred in most television doctors but the level of her superiority to everyone else continues even after everything she thinks is disproved she continues. But the worst of it is she is held in a building with a potential mob death she still gives the people holding her orders insisting she is still in charge. I know this is a tv show and she's a character in the show but I can't stand this show with her in it.
