This is going to be divisive
3 November 2016 | by fnordsenseiSee all my reviews

This is one of those series that is going to be divisive in several respects.

There are going to be those who've read the books, and those who haven't. Those who care whether it follows the books, and those who don't. And on top of that, this is not a show that is trying to appeal in one way or another to all audiences either. This is likely going to be one of those shows that you will either give a very high or a very low rating.

The story is fast paced, and presented like a jigsaw puzzle. Avoid if you like your stories linear, with an optional twist at the end. This one is all twist. (Maybe it'll be linear at the end.)

I didn't expect anything going in, and came out happy for having seen it.
