Why aren't there a bunch of comments here? I feel the need to discuss this show but without other comments, I'm not sure where to start...
The original trailer apple showed made this series seem EPIC - the scenery, the battle scenes, the Momoa. Then I read some lackluster reviews and I was prepared for disappointment. Honestly, though, I wasn't disappointed at all. The filming WAS epic. The fight scenes WERE awesome. The plot was interesting and the characters were better formed than I expected. I was totally immersed and binged the whole series in a couple of days.
Even as much of the world didn't make complete sense, I believed these characters. I believed their society. I saw the princess-reveal from early on and knew what we'd find in her secret satchel before it was opened, but it still worked for me.
I loved the Voss/Jerlameral showdown. I loved to hate the queen.
The only thing that didn't make any sense to me other than 'plot' - was Boots' betrayal. If the Queen died, the princess he was already sworn to would've become queen. And she is certainly more trustworthy than the Queen he switched allegiances to. That didn't make any sense. But, otherwise, truly enjoyed and hope to see another season. I look forward to the reunification of the family and, potentially, the discovery of more sighted people.
