Take medieval setting, sprinkle some magic mix it with some of the best writing and you get some of the best books and TV show you can find. You never know who might die and what could happen. First few seasons run parallel to the books but after that it starts being a little bit different from them...kinda like watching a parallel universe...and that is awesome...hey you get 2 for 1.
Tells the tales as they originally were...bloody, macabre and as real as they come. I love the gritty feel of it and how so many classics that I loved reading as a kid intertwine in this superb storyline. Yes it has some flaws but it makes them up in some of the best acting and twists.
I am not sure why I keep watching the flash...its not great...and it has never been and jet I still keep watching. Perhaps because I just like Flash from the animated series/comics and just will myself to like this version.
