A bit scary
8 March 2019 | by ersbelSee all my reviews

This story is a bit scary. Hour, after hour of Asian entertainment on Netflix. And they all tell the same story, although densely populated the Asian countries have only a handful of individuals. The rest is just a mass that requires food and shelter from the king in order to worship him. And make no mistake, the king is not an individual either, he is only the provider and the slave to their whims and happiness.
