What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

It's an alright show. I mean the sound effects and fighting scenes could be better. The plot is rushed just a little, but at the same time kinda boring. The first episode seemed like forever, but the action was very rushed. It took them 30 minutes to kill Romeo and Juliet when they could've used 10 to do it. I will continue to watch this, but I won't be disappointing if it gets cancelled if the show continues like this. However, I am hoping the next couple of episodes will be good. FINGERS CROSSED!!!
*** UPDATE***
After watching at least 3 or 4 of the episodes, I find it a pain to watch just as it is a pain to watch any show on a Saturday night.... The plot finally takes less time to do one scene which is great, but I'm just not into it... I love period pieces, but this show.... I don't know. The acting can kinda be better, the scenes, the villains, EVERYTHING COULD BE BETTER. SHE SHOULD'VE LEFT THIS WITH HBO OR SHOWTIME OR BBC OR PBS!! They seem to know how to make amazing period dramas.
