With constant action, plot twists, and surprises from a magical world, this show gets more and more intense, keeping the viewers’ attention. The challenges facing the characters are extraordinary but, mostly, difficult. It’s also the case with the LGBTQ+ characters that live in a very different world, their coming out and their relationship problems include challenges that are different from our own. This show keeps the human side of this story so that we can identify with the characters while bringing the story to a different level, one that is out of our own reality.
