This tv show is so strong, really good script, great acting, top directing. I will grant that my expectations for Shogun - Season 1 were very low before watching it. For me, a good tv show is one which has several smart conversations and if those collective conversations brings up the central idea of the tv show, itÔÇÖs a delight. The soundtrack of these tv show is simple, decieving, full of mischief in its own right. But this diversity of dialogues is the essence of this tv series, they arouse the audience's respect, especially against the backdrop of today's cinema. The acting was good, storyline was great and action was fantastic. I loved this tv series from the first sight.... Show more
