If by some miracle this show see's a season 2 let it be short again with only 7 episodes and Shonda should think about how she is going to end the series on a positive note and not drag out the answers to questions. Finally having a clear Villain is good Paris but is it too late. The Prince of Verona is weak character and I do not understand why Rosaline is in love with such a loser. Benvelio is way more interesting and a better match for Rosaline .

It's an alright show. I mean the sound effects and fighting scenes could be better. The plot is rushed just a little, but at the same time kinda boring. The first episode seemed like forever, but the action was very rushed. It took them 30 minutes to kill Romeo and Juliet when they could've used 10 to do it. I will continue to watch this, but I won't be disappointing if it gets cancelled if the show continues like this. However, I am hoping the next couple of episodes will be good. FINGERS CROSSED!!!
*** UPDATE***
After watching at least 3 or 4 of the episodes, I find it a pain to watch just as it is a pain to watch any show on a Saturday night.... The plot finally takes less time to do one scene which is great, but I'm just not into it... I love period pieces, but this show.... I don't know. The acting can kinda be better, the scenes, the villains, EVERYTHING COULD BE BETTER. SHE SHOULD'VE LEFT THIS WITH HBO OR SHOWTIME OR BBC OR PBS!! They seem to know how to make amazing period dramas.

Shonda takes on Shakespeare in 43 minutes to condense the tale of Romeo and Juliet. It seems that the rest of the episodes will tell the story of what happens after the tragic end of their love story.

The acting, writing, and directing is alright. I am curious to see where they go with it. I am going to give it a few more episodes.

The series was promising in the beginning but quickly became the next series full of "action" and no substance.

After reading all the negative reviews of this show I didn't quite knowwhat to expect. But I thought I would be surprised if I made it past the first episode. Boy, was I wrong! This show is awesome and it is a shame it got cancelled! After two episode I was hooked! It is way better than Reign and how many seasons did that get?
I do concede there could have been some improvements. It is based on the story of Romeo and Juliet. And we all know how that ends. It starts with that ending. But it does feel rushed in the beginning. It could have been drawn out a lot more. And not just that part.
Butt the acting was pretty good and the characters were, for the most part, pretty believable. I Lied were the storyline was taking me. The way it was spinning out the ending of Shakespeare's classic story to something completely new.
The costumes were waaaaay better than in Reign.

I am really upset that it ended after only 7 episodes. And that it concluded without a proper ending. It was just getting really interesting, too!

Followed it to the end and thoroughly enjoyed it. Sad that it has apparently been cancelled.

I love period pieces, but for some unknown reason just could not get my mind into this one. Started watching the first episode 3 times. After the first 20 or so minutes I would give up. Can't explain it.....Sorry folks that's all I've got.

It was kinda boring. Thought it would be good considering I love Romeo and Juliet, but it seemed to drag on. Quit after 2 episodes.

Ugh. Shonda apparently has only a surface understanding of the story. Contrived. Trite. Forced. At least Paris wasn't forgotten this time.
