  1. It does have a Disney look about it with a touch of Willy Wonka in the peculiar Mr. Benedict character, but have these super society yarns based on books been over done lately?, I guess not when this genre keeps getting the budget needed to get them on our small screens.
    Good to see that COVID distancing was being practiced in this show.
