The first season is excellent. Judy Davis is such a good actress! Great story about justice and compassion with gorgeous scenery and music too. However the second season is very dull, not worth watching. Judy Davis is not in this, and the acting and the story are dull as dishwater, no music either and the scenery is awful.

Fabulous acting and especially wonderful cinematography. Not much graphic violence with solid character development. I want more seasons!
