I had time to read the book this is based on, but I wasn’t willing because some books, some genres of books have a time and/or a mood for me to read. So I went in blind and right off the bat, I loved how this episode started, documentary-style with the present-day characters and images of their past. Their attitude and expressions alone were telling us how rocky this would get.

The episode immediately pulls you in by transporting you to that era, and effectively introducing the main characters, scars and all. Everything in this episode seems to have been carefully curated, the opening theme, the production design, the music, the atmosphere, even the title of the episode, it’s all very good. It got to a point where I regretted not having read the book beforehand because I don’t know if the creators are excellent or the book is, it’s probably both but I’m impressed.

The cast is just excellent, this is a movie-level production and I think I’ll enjoy the ride.
