AY not really a MAYRA.

It's not one of my favorite shows, but I like it. It's just still no Rosemary's Baby, Mixology, or Major Crimes. There is a little sex involved, but violence is more of an issue here.

Is It Any Good?

Based on a popular novel, LABYRINTH nestles a scintillating mystery within the dramatic historical events of Carcassonne in 1209. It was a time when legions of Crusaders wiped out an entire population of Cathars for what the Catholic Church viewed as heretical beliefs. Conspiracy theorists and mystery buffs will enjoy the way this miniseries explores modern and ancient secret societies and grail lore and the events that unfold in Alice's and Alais's lives as they're swept away by their unwitting involvement.

The show does an excellent job of managing the dual storylines and creating unifying moments that keep viewers invested in both, and there's never a shortage of drama since both women are surrounded by evil and self-serving foes masquerading as allies. The copious violence requires a mature temperament, as does the suggestion that supernatural forces are at play. In other words, this is one for older teens and adults.
