I had such high hopes for Sweet Home … such high hopes. I was writing about this series long before it premiered on Netflix but now that its over, I feel somewhat shortchanged. It may be an unpopular opinion but I was wishing that Sweet Home could have been more than a 10-episode setup for the second season.

All in all, I would consider Kingdom to be one of Korea’s finest saeguk dramas that can rival the suspense and intensity of HBO’s Game of Thrones. By the first season’s end, it had Battle of Castle Black feels which only fueled one’s desire to see what happens next when the second season opens. Too bad filming will only begin next month and fans will have to wait for another few months before we could binge on another epic season. I for one, could not wait to see if my conspiracy theories are correct. One word for the entire thing — brilliant, even though it ended on a cliffhanger. I could not think of more superlatives for this series. Seriously.
