Here are the positives: the costuming and cinematography are beautiful. The acting is well above par. Despite this, I found myself wishing this series were over sooner than it was. I had it for months and never felt in the mood to watch, and as everything good on TV is on hiatus, I tuned in. Don't mistake me, the series is NOT bad, far from it, it just failed to capture me. To me, good is something that is watchable many times over.
