Right from the start, catches your eye with its ultimately natural, scenic and breathtaking depiction of the Amazon and its indigenous inhabitants.

I can't give it 10 stars because there were some negatives for me and it did move too slow in some parts, but still a well done series and worth watching at least once.

It sucked me into the world, and that's before we even mention the story which was suspenseful, intense and really well done.

The storyline is also just so compelling and unfolds smoothly without being forced like a lot of others do these days.

Slow, boring, emotionless .

However, the script is extremely basic, bland, and the actors fall flat.

The magick of the jungle and the two indigenous shamanic characters is so fascinating because it is unlike anything ever depicted in film before.

The show is slow and emotionless.

Out of cliché, teaching adventure .

I highly recommend it (along with Dark) this is by far the most original tv show produced in recent years.

However, I recommend you watch it when you have time to relax and soak in the atmosphere it creates, it is quite absorbing.

Photographically it is beautiful and breathtaking, some of the shots of the jungle are just mesmerizing.

unfortunately it becomes quite repetitive towards the middle and the ending is just bad.

The use of flashbacks is excellent, though may be confusing for some.

I Want To Like This, But It's Way Too Slow .

A very unique viewpoint and worth watching for this particular Third World aspect!

This story is deep and profound, as well as being very suspensful and extremely exciting.

Its just a waste of time!

The plot uncovered in a confusing way, the timeline felt overburdened with slow and uninteresting subplots, and the tone quickly became very monotonous.

This series is really unique, I've never seen something like this, It's really worth the watch.

Considering the plot, I felt that the 8 episodes kind of dragged and it could have been shown in 4 or 5 episodes.

How other viewers on here are so easily manipulated makes me sick, as in the case of the 'Spy', an Israeli-Mossad propaganda film.

Original, gripping and unique .

It's hard to say what it was really but it was really well done I thought, acting, scenery and story all compelling with the magical/supernatural element running through it making it that bit more interesting.

However, at the half way point it falters and for some reason descends into trite, predictable, formulaic, tacky storytelling that almost ruins the entire series.

A slow one time watch .

Waste of time!!!.

But too slow for me.

Beautiful scenery, great acting and a compelling plot.

The acting is superb and the cinematography is simply breathtaking.

Breathtaking cinematography and locations.

But in this version, the jungle looks mostly grey, damp and dull.

Overall it ends up boring

This was painfully boring for me to watch.

Excellent cast and fantastic script/scenes that are riveting in their uniqueness.

A cool idea, and I love the photography, but the pace of this is just too slow.

Great production values, edgy music, and great cinematography ought not to be substitutes for lazy 'everything is connected', 'good v evil' trite tropes, popular, lowest common denominator storytelling.
