Slow paced, but somewhat pleasant to watch


Gave it 3 episodes, nearly fell asleep on the 3rd. Premise is okay but just utterly terrible execution, just constant talking and talking


i know its just the type of show this is, but i’d like less romance shoe-horned in and more MYSTERY SOLVING.


Bland and boring. The premise is kinda interesting but it fails to deliver. Hopefully it’ll get better but yeah…


Slow. Too slow. Gave it the standard 3-episodes to judge, and I’m done.


The real question is why this guy doesn’t get a part time job as a PI. He’d be rich.


It’s not a good mystery series, nor is it a good romantic drama. It’s not even much of a chill series. Solidly mediochre.



    can i kwill u plis 🥺🥺
