  1. Is it any good, though? I know a mention on this site doesn’t mean an endorsement but there is no review of the movie and damn near every article on it has no comments. Can someone provide some insight? Because the description and promotional images aren’t really selling this program well.

    • It’s very good. Great acting, great writing. Doesn’t take itself too seriously. Highly recommended.
