Nicely, we had been satisfied to offer the present a shot after it took residence a number of awards at this 12 months’s Emmys, and we had been completely gained over. It seems that among the questions that made us unsure concerning the idea (similar to: What’s the purpose of a monarchy in fashionable society?) are precisely what the present is attempting to discover.
