Short, effective episodes. Raises some tough questions and tells a really interesting story about censorship and religious + artistic freedom. As a history fan this scratched that itch as well.

Why such short episodes?

The whole story is super interesting. The reason for the low review is due to its 14 minute long episodes that have long intros and spoilers on the next episode. The formatting is irritating. The whole of the ten episodes could have been done in two long episodes. It would have kept it interesting. Instead it’s bogged down by short episodes with too much fat.
