This show seems to have difficulty handling the variety of characters involved and the social/political circumstances which defined this tumultuous era. There are confusing time period changes in the first episode, as well.
However, it is visually stunning, and the costumes are fabulous. I think that, once the characters are better established, this show could be something really special. It’s worth a watch.
