It does get frustrating but the show is still so engrossing I can't stop watching. It gets slow at times, lacks action, but then the payoff is its epic nature and twisting plot lines. It keeps you guessing.
I did have to go online a few times to read the back stories on the characters. It gets hard to follow sometimes.
