It's like a whole new show
15 October 2019 | by GXS_CORE_MEDIA_MANIACSee all my reviews

Wow, this new season started with a bang. It's mysterious, it's dark and somehow apocalyptic. It talks about war and how the powers that be do everything they can to win it. How we treat each other like things and not like humans. It makes you wonder you know? Oh, and we had some pretty cool action sequences with Blackbird.
