OVERALL: I have no idea what is going on and I never miss an episode. It is that good. Hubby and I love to watch it. I think I’m beginning to understand. Oh who cares! Check out this show!
I’m looking forward to season 2.
POINTS: Cool characters, sets, writing, plot. Again I don’t always know what is going on, but I sure do enjoy it.
PITFALLS: Well I think the writers/producers are not so good at explanations of world/story. I do wish I knew the world of the story better. Then again since it comes from a series of books, it is not surprising that staff know the world way better than I do and don’t explain everything. Note however that I am still watching and will for as long as it is on! 😉
FEMALE CHARACTER(S): Women in this show are cool. Shohreh Aghdashloo (no I can’t say her name and one day I hope to) is amazing as a politician who is talking and walking a fine line. We are not sure what that fine line is, but her morals seem to be deeper than imagined in the first episodes.
CULTURAL PITFALL(S): Hmmm….. I’ll let you know.
BECHDEL TEST (Website): 1 of 3 to 3 of 3 depending on the episode.
RACIAL BECHDEL TEST (Website): 1 of 3 to 3 of 3 depending on the episode.
