Hopefully it's better written and more fulfilling than Tribes and Empires. None of the wide array of plots in that series concluded or really culminated towards anything, and it even had the nerve to create even more story lines towards the end.
I watched Tribes and Empires. Agree that that went absolutely nowhere but oddly enough, I was more than satisfied with the process.
Odd fact: some of the vignettes were so vivid that they visited me in my dreams. With a better script, of course.
Gosh these really long drama these let’s hope this one is not filler of super slow walking and eating … Im going to wait for it to end first, don’t want waste my time like T&E…
Last minute this one was pulled off the airing and it shattered my hopes. Dont know when its getting the new air date.
