What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

The character types are very 'Lord of the Rings x Harry Potter' and set with the grim machinations of 'Game of Thrones'. There are many underlying sub-stories that would possibly elaborate in any consecutive seasons. It took watching 5 episodes to connect the thread between some characters, with really potent prejudices and bigotry.
Its a vast setting that is dark and gloomy, however I enjoyed the retrospective genre of a community set in 1900's.
Well worth a binge watch for a rainy day. Enjoyed this show hugely.
