Get attached to characters just to watch them slaughtered.

The title of this show tells you exactly what is going to happen. Everyone dies. You get to know these characters you begin to love just to see them slaughtered. It was interesting to see Robin Hood (Jonas Armstrong) portraying a bad guy. There is no great messages. The one guy who I thought was being the best example this show has to offer as a good role model throws a baby off a wall to kill it. I am disappointed in how violent and sad it was but at the same time the title explains what’s gonna happen.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
