John’s run hasn’t introduced individuals collectively, and it is a severely divided land that John oversees, all with the hope that he can salvage the ranch and put an finish to the invasive species often known as man in his in any other case excellent world.
Within the first two episodes shared with critics, there is not any getting across the urgency with which John should act or the toll it would tackle his supporters.
