I didn't know who I was supposed to be attached to. Gave up very quickly. Maybe an artsy movie but the story was weak

What a great series. Wish it didn't have to end already. Either way, one of my top shows.

No spoilers.

I just wanted to say that this series is more art than it is entertainment. There's nothing wrong with that of course, in fact I welcome it. Just look at the poster to the left. A human body in the shape of a skull.. both terrifying and artistic. This is what most of the series is like. You can see that the creators took great pains to infuse their artistry into the show and for that I'm grateful. They did a great many things in this show that I had never seen before and I'm glad I took the time to enjoy watching this. Would highly recommend!
