Love it!

The first season has received a lot of bad reviews, yet I dont know why. I was hooked the first episode and now all the way up to episode 7 it's still amazing. It has really good character development and kept my interested throughout the episodes. I'm really hoping for a season 3, this show is amazing.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much sex

Interesting Premise but Bad Writing

Starts off promising, but by Episode 4, the bad writing sinks it. The connection to fairy tales is very very loose-almost non existent. Handsome men and mostly all naked at some point, but the cheap tricks and connections between the players is sub par.
