What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

This Netflix sponsored creation finds itself edging away from traditional anime and into more fluid story arcs. Battlestar Galactica fans, however, will groan when they begin to notice all of the parallels. It's a bold series that misses its target entirely.
