What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Definitely something new and different. Others keep trying to compare it to GoT crossed with other series but none of the comparisons do it justice. It's a dark but somewhat familiar take on mythical creatures made manifest in our reality. It works for me. The plot line was sufficiently complex that I didn't see it coming. The casting and acting excellent. The production values just awesome. And the music was both haunting and spot on. Looking forward to Season 2 as this season seemed like an amuse-bouche for what looks to be a much larger and epic offering to come.
