    While I enjoyed the series as a whole, it was a little underwhelming to me. There’s nothing wrong with the sentimate shared, that we make who we are; I think it’s more about how the show itself set up a grand reveal as a twist.

    The mother being completely unable to be found the whole time, then suddenly UNIT finds all her info after the 3rd act finale was really what was frustrating after the buildup of the series.

    I loved the 4th wall breaks of the gods themselves, and the old neighbor hinted as one of the harbingers at the first episodes as well when thinking back.

    The idea that the god of death has been along for the ride this whole time is a sweet idea, but wrapped up so quickly that the punch wasn’t felt. I can see why, as the whole gimmick with him was that he just kills everyone.

      It was all very convenient. The police have tracked down criminals using their DNA on genetic genealogy sites and don’t need the actual individual’s DNA just someone close enough to narrow things down. I know someone who was adopted and their father’s name was unknown but she did DNA testing that unearthed some of his family and she now knows who he was.
