Why the low score
10 October 2017 | by Rofocale777See all my reviews

I just watched this show and when I looked it up on IMDb, I was shocked to see such a low score on this show. I enjoyed it very much. I was great hearing a lot of his music, there were some great remarks and the award is certainly well deserved.

So why do so many people rate this show so low? I really can't figure it out. I even googled it to see if there was any controversy surrounding the show, but couldn't find any.

There is probably not much chance, but I really hope that someone, who has given this a low score, can explain why.

Thanks in advance.
