Love, but...

I love this show, but I keep coming across episodes that are missing half of the show... getting hard to follow along with the missing sections...

Superb

This phenomenal show will hook you from the start and draw you into the world of England in the early 20th century during the First World War. The characters are engaging and their stories are absorbing; the production values couldn't be better. I can't recommend this show highly enough!
