If you don’t enjoy this show, I feel pain for you

I, not unlike Abbie, enjoy the precise. Exactness. So when I give 5 out of 5 stars, this show truly truly deserves every bit of those 5 stars.

Worth the wait!

I found the story to be a bit slow as to the direction it was taking, but I as curious so I continued. I agree with other ratings on how the volume of the intro, commercials and cast intros to be way to loud. The volume should not have to be turned down before and after the show. It is a considerable difference in volume. But the story really picks up towards the end of season one, by time you get to season 2, it was COMPLETELY WORTH THE WAIT! Love the direction of the story! If not for the audio I’d give it 5 stars.
Update season 3:
Best cliffhanger yet!!!!! Can’t wait till season 4!!!
Volume issue fixed, ty.
