I gave up on this halfway through episode 1. Example after example of gothic art and architecture is presented, but no conclusions are drawn and no real insights presented. Perhaps the narrator sums up at the end but I gave up early on. Besides, a late summary would need to be in the manner of sweeping generalizations which would be unsatisfactory. I was especially disappointed because the presenter is so, well, presentable - he’s likable and authoritative in manner but, again, this all seems to go nowhere with the program just a pastiche of gothic whatnots. Not quite polished enough in putting it all together.
