Aside from a few of the actors being miscast to the point of ridiculous/silly, the other actors make up for it! Great cinematography, costumes, sets, etc. (that's the show's strength) Storyline is good, not great, and drags a bit too much.
Great series. I can't wait for the next season.
I LOVED THIS!!!! Best series on Shudder so far!!! I couldnt stop watching!!!! I cant wait to get started on season two!!!! I would give it an even higher rating if it was an option
Amazing, I loved the first season and the development of the characters in the season season is phenomenal. The work that was put into the set designs are fantastic too.
