Saw the Premiere
15 November 2018 | by julietkwanSee all my reviews

It's a great introduction to the series. Acting is great, it is shot really well, and the music really fits the tone. Ben Stiller does a great job directing this episode and I really have high hopes for the rest of the show. While watching I was skeptical about how they will extend this story into a series because it could be a feature film, but I really think they will go through in a creative way. The whole cast and crew is very talented and I am excited for the show premiere on TV so people can enjoy it.
