This show looked promising, but I did not enjoy it at all. I just couldn’t get into the plot, mainly because it didn’t make sense to me. In addition, the excessive, brutal, gory killings turned my stomach. I get that executions are the theme of the show, but the amoral way they are presented felt evil to me. I wish there had been more concentration on the moral dilemma of his work. Instead, I found myself struggling to identify with the main character, who seemed to have no problem with his actions. This show is not worth a watch.
