    1. I have a feeling I will be disappointed too, but I'm holding onto a hope! I just cannot digest Aidan anymore, he has such a short range, always boring and same.

  2. I don't know this series, but I'd love to watch it. However, if it's on Amazon Prime - there is hope.

  3. Not sure it would be my kind of show but I might try to give it a chance. I've been doing that on Netflix and some of the show I thought I wouldn't like turned out to be good.

  6. 50 different locations to film? A lot of work went into this. I hope it doesn't disappoint, but it seems like a lot of people aren't holding out much hope for it to be spectacular.

    1. I'm not either and I'm a fan of the genre, it is just that Aidan, as much as I love him as a person, is always the same and it has become boring long time ago, they should've at least changed his hair or something. And Tom Riley was great Leo.

    2. I agree, it seems like all of Aiden's characters blend into one. Quite boring, indeed.

    3. They should've cast someone else.

  9. Images of the Leanardo Tv series are great. They say that this series budget is amazing!!! (More than 2500 costumes, 50 different locations, 500 crews...). No No! I don't want to ask its budget. Thank you for the information. Happy day.
