If you only read/watch modern fiction you could be forgiven for thinking there are just 2 types of men, villains and cowards (who, if they do become redeemed or heroic for any small patch of time, only do so at the prompting of a woman), and just one type of woman, the strong independent warrior poet doctor scientist engineer hero princess (who usually starts off as a victim).
It's getting boring.
Ignore the haters. This was a good show. Is it some work of art with never before seen story telling technique...No. Is it an interesting show depicting life in DRC while showing conflict mining with good actors that provide entertainment....Yes.
I was uninterested while watching the series premiere but got slightly interested nearing the end of the episode. It became more enjoyable from that moment forward, though still had some boring moments. I feel like I'm starting to have this view more and more with shows I have a similar reaction to and that it's becoming my imminent reaction, but I wouldn't rewatch this show. Shows that I wouldn't mind rewatching entirely or just certain episodes despite already watching it are what I consider to be good shows. This show isn't bad enough to the point where I just can't watch all of it, thankfully, but I don't find it good enough to where I'd watch it again. In fact, I probably wouldn't have even given it a shot if Kate Beckinsale wasn't the main actor or in it at all even though I'm indifferent about her and haven't watched anything else with her in it.
Four episode in. Good show. Story unfolds slowly but doesn’t get dragged out. I would recommend it so far.
A classic example of wasted talent. This series has a very thin plot, and you can smell the twist from miles away. You are better off just doing nothing rather than watching this!
