Ignore the haters. This was a good show. Is it some work of art with never before seen story telling technique...No. Is it an interesting show depicting life in DRC while showing conflict mining with good actors that provide entertainment....Yes.

If you only read/watch modern fiction you could be forgiven for thinking there are just 2 types of men, villains and cowards (who, if they do become redeemed or heroic for any small patch of time, only do so at the prompting of a woman), and just one type of woman, the strong independent warrior poet doctor scientist engineer hero princess (who usually starts off as a victim). It's getting boring.

This show is clearly a stretch. However, I must say it was an entertaining stretched. LOL

Kate Beckinsale, having shed the vampire fangs, now, proving once again that she really is a multi-faceted daywalker to be reckoned with, leads an all-star cast, including the 11th Doctors wife, (before he simultaneously re- generated and transitioned), and his badness, Sardo Numpsa himself, apparently having never obtained the knife, but very possibly the fountain of youth, as well as a multi- cultural cast of redshirts and assorted ne'er-do-wells, while this time rescuing slightly darker Golden Child who is a she playing a she, rather than a she playing a he....... but I'm just being silly... Actually this was REALLY good, in spite of suffering from a touch of savior complex as the morally upright anglos swoop in to save the natives from the morally bankrupt anglos, who are pillaging the country with the help of some other morally ambiguous natives, and expatriates who, at one time may have been righteous, but were corrupted by their greed and lack of vision. That's the ONLY reason it wasn't "Totally Ninja" It is told in a present / flash back / flash forward style that can be a bit disconcerting, but actually is used to set up the plot twists, after you've already seen the plot twists, which then explains the consequences of the plot twists, and then there are the force ghosts, or, perhaps rather, "conscience" ghosts, which, you wont realize at times ARE ghosts, until after the fact. The tension and drama while smoldering and building, is still palpable at times, and, did I mention the WTF plot twists???? Room is left at the conclusion, which while it tied up many of the loose ends, still left a smidgen of room for a Season 2, which I would love to see a continuation of the main characters stories ad well as some back fill to round things out. Worth a binge watch if you get the chance. Jeff Bezos doing big things with this billions once again.

This was a wonderful surprise! An intricately crafted story. Twists and turns in abundance. Fine performances. An intriguing palet of venues. Rarely do I give the first episode of a series a 9, but this series sustained its quality til the very last act. I give the whole series a 10 (the total package) out of 10. [Mystery Adventure Drama]

Worth watching. It didn’t quite live up to its potential but please don’t let me put you off watching this drama.

I can't believe what horse crap this site? tvdb? ishowstv app? is doing with this show! I added this show to my iShows TV app weeks ago, I've been watching on Amazon Prime. Now that I've finished the show, and I want to mark it as finished, all of a sudden this show is listed under some other network (ITV), and the episodes are listed as airing in the future...?!?!? Um, NO! A similar situation happened with the show Taboo. It aired in Europe first, then came to the U.S. on FX Network. I posted on some site, not sure which one, I've spent the past 30mins trying to find it but am unsuccessful. I posted how the show should be updated for the FX Network airing so members can Trakt it correctly. The response (from the owner/admin/moderator) I got is that the original airing is kept to avoid any confusion and my request was closed and put to an end. So you can understand my frustration that the table has turned against me, and I'm still at the bitter end of it! W-T-H!?!!!!

Beckinsale plays a naive wife, it's a used trope that's not so great to watch. I'm not sure I will continue after the first episode.

I was uninterested while watching the series premiere but got slightly interested nearing the end of the episode. It became more enjoyable from that moment forward, though still had some boring moments. I feel like I'm starting to have this view more and more with shows I have a similar reaction to and that it's becoming my imminent reaction, but I wouldn't rewatch this show. Shows that I wouldn't mind rewatching entirely or just certain episodes despite already watching it are what I consider to be good shows. This show isn't bad enough to the point where I just can't watch all of it, thankfully, but I don't find it good enough to where I'd watch it again. In fact, I probably wouldn't have even given it a shot if Kate Beckinsale wasn't the main actor or in it at all even though I'm indifferent about her and haven't watched anything else with her in it.

Four episode in. Good show. Story unfolds slowly but doesn’t get dragged out. I would recommend it so far.
