Let me put it like this I love the premise of this show and how it handles one of the most taboo subjects in our society the contrast between life and death and what it means BUT...
(and this is why I only gave the show 8/10 points even when the subject matter was brilliant and the different kind of characters, people like you and me to revenge hungry murderers. Teenager in love to a spouse who fears his wife cheating on him and becomes abusive to her)
Let me get to the point, the show misses it's oportunity BIG TIME to debate about the meaning of
life here and overall do that in a manner that can compare the worth of emotions to the worth of one life itself. A contrast between living for ones own sake to living for people you love and this is where the show got quite shallow(it's very good anyways but i hoped for more). Without spoiling too much of it let me put it like this the whole premise of the worth of life and who is worth giving this valuable thing again wasn't really concluded. They put it kinda like that "the judges can't feel like humans so they have to objectively decide about their fates BUT if they could feel like them they wouldn't be able to judge"
SO FUCKING WHAT? Already in the first episode it gets to the point of a misjudgement and they just want to keep going like that. The point is that they cannot judge properly with emotions and they can't without them either because the human soul is a complex thing. We don't need the myth busters or ANY psychological thinking to come to that point and I really hoped that the series would go one step further at this point and do something about this dilemma.
It didn't it just kept me hanging and ended abruptedly, just like this review, cheers!
