Is It Any Good?

Despite the show's title, the "blood" isn't nearly as ubiquitous as the title suggests -- the focus is more on the cultural changes afoot and on the Romeo and Juliet-styled romance of Clara and Roman. This certainly isn't the first time we've seen a Hatfield-and-McCoy style forbidden romance cause problems for warring families, and Oktoberfest: Beer & Blood doesn't exactly introduce anything new to that formula. That being said, the acting here is uniformly good, the writing decent enough, and the production values pretty darn excellent -- so if you don't mind the paint-by-numbers story and can vibe with the old-timey, pseudo-historical setting, you could definitely do worse.
