User Reviews

Underwhelming - Average at best, but mostly nonsense draped in more nonsense. No real storyline, lots of subplots that don't make sense and gratuitous kink
4 August 2020 | by WhateverIWant29See all my reviews

It's not worth the watch unless you're simply trying to kill time. The trailer looked amazing, yet the whole thing was very anti-climactic and underwhelming. Not much that means anything actually happens. I see what they tried to do and it just didn't quite work. Visually it's nice to look at, the colours, contextual setting, backdrop and clothes. The erotic element is also intriguing, but its not enough to carry the show, which doesn't really make sense. There is not enough character development of the main characters and lots of caricature acting/portrayal of the characters - have to assume it's intentional but didn't stop me cringing. Also, there are lots of subplots littered all over that aren't developed properly. The whole thing is a bit all over the place with a few "taboo" and kink scenes to shock or titillate... but most didn't really make sense or help advance the story. Overall it was just nonsense, then more nonsense upon nonsense. Could have been a really good drama, but sadly fell flat.
