It is rare for me to complain that I wish a show was longer, but: I wish this was longer! The tropey interplay was fun but there wasn't that much of it because 13 episodes meant an extremely tight arc, and the most fun aspects of these sorts of shows — getting to try and figure out the mystery before the show reveals it — is nigh-impossible because the actual investigation scenes happen in the span of seconds. The setting is weird and fun and the characters are great, but too brief — really all this did was act as an effective advertisement for the game on which it was based.
