Even better than the first half
27 February 2017 | by caseysparkerSee all my reviews

Exceptional second half of the first episode. The quality of the content here is great, the writing is outstanding. The second half of this episode really shines. If the first half is the introduction this half really gets the ball rolling. The way they're setting up story-line makes me very excited to see where they're heading in future episodes. A must-watch.
