Maniac Review
21 September 2018 | by vladimir-janicSee all my reviews

Brilliantly crafted show. The atmosphere of the series pulls you into its intriguing, eccentric retro-futuristic world. The acting is exquisite and the characters are thoroughly developed. The series is innovative, original, intelligently funny but also emotional, in a few words, it is of a high quality in every aspect of its production!
