A very good opening of the season
28 August 2018 | by 851222See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

So the main question for me regarding this seasons was and still is after seeing first two episodes - will this show be as much as involving now without its main star - Pablito. The first episode proved that it will be - i really liked the opening episode. Its all here - superbly involving script, great acting, amazing cinematography, great directing and a story larger then life. I will really be looking forward to see this whole season 3.
