Is it Worth Streaming?
If you want an honest review, the series should be watched by those who have severe patience to go through all details minutely but first, he/she must have a keen interest in knowing what happened to Von Dutch. The story could easily have been depicted at one go, like in a film, because the episodes sometimes become dull and are unnecessarily long stretched.
It sometimes fails to portray facts and details and gives vivid, dramatic scenes that seem quite annoying. The plot sometimes seems to diverge from Von Dutch to Vaughn more, which makes the audience lose interest. Why focus on characters when you needed to focus on the brand?
