Extraordinary, in a class of its own
27 March 2019 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

Just finished ep 07, one of the most unforgettable stories I have ever encountered (and that is with over 1200 reviews here.) At first the dialog seems over-written but that is only if you compare it to something else. As an artistic work of its own, it is quite incredible and mesmerizing.
