Terrific production values
To start, the technical aspects of this series are incredibly well done- the costumes, makeup, visual effects, production design, and soundtrack are all outstanding. Visually speaking, this series oozes with style. I also loved the title sequence and the Terminator homage that came with it.
On the flip side of the coin, the story suffered because of the constant voiceover. It really comes off more like a narrative crutch than a stylistic choice. It also doesn't help that the characters say next to nothing- instead letting the voiceover unload the plot and character exposition rather than letting everything unfold organically. Alas, this creates a feeling of detachment and makes it difficult to really invest in the story. I was mostly in awe of the high end production values instead of being engaged with the characters and storyline.
7/10. Certainly worth a watch for the impressive technical aspects!
