Episodes 1 & 2: 4/5 stars. More review coming soon.
Episode 3: 4/5 stars. Really starting to pick up now. Very interested to see where this goes.
Episode 4: 3.5/5 stars. Didn't feel as satisfying as the first three episodes until the last couple of minutes when things started to ramp up. What a great ending though.
