So far so great!
7 May 2019 | by mgpapasSee all my reviews

I almost never give anything 10 stars, and would probably only have given this a 9 if it weren't so grossly underrated. Only 3 episodes in, but it's become one of my favorite shows on now, and if its quality remains this high will likely be among my all time favorites. As man I want to contradict the reviews, and ratings this show has gotten from men (6.1 compared with 8.5 from women). Men are portrayed honestly, and no worse than they should be given our attitudes towards women in the 1830's.
