User Reviews

 
It changes course.
2 June 2020 | by staciarose20See all my reviews

This show can be funny, vulgar, raunchy, and ridiculous, but by the end it took a more serious tone. Not your typical period piece. This isn't all starched collars and roses. My opinion on all of the characters changed throughout the ten episodes, and that's what surprised me about it the most. Beautiful filming location as well. I will be watching season 2 if it's renewed.
