I can dig it.
28 January 2018 | by TheOneThatYouWantedSee all my reviews

Me likey. Me likey a lot. This is like a retro-spin which is modernly smart enough to avoid goofy camp. This is my first time watching anything Lupin and I am three episodes into season four... or whatever the latest season is, as of 2017. But yeah, this series has sharp dialogue, good action, a likable band of misfits but more importantly of all, it is a fun watch. I was tempted to go back and watch the other seasons but that is too much viewing for my liking. 8/10
