Ratner is unable to maintain the emotional intensity that has made this series so deeply epic. But he sure knows how to put on a show.

I'm quite disappointed in how this thing turned out... Or am I? No, no I'm not. I expected bad acting and that's, unfortunately, what I got. Jean looks like she aged about 20 years since last we...
