Color me surprised. It's a great adaptation with pretty good VO, great action scenes (the last one is amazing) and those characters are totally alright. It sticks just close enough to the source material. A great example of how to adapt a video game into a show. Only downside is it's really short and cliffhanger-y. Not to bad since they already confirmed season 2 with double the number of episodes. So it comes highly recommended.
PS: Special props go to the whip animation. Whoever is handling that is doing some great looking creative stuff.
