11. I watched the first episode, and just couldn't get into it.

Alas, the book it's based on is extremely flawed also, although it earns (in my opinion) unaccountable praise.

It is a relatively early alternate history novel, which is why I think a lot of people don't look at it very carefully. Some years ago my science fiction book club in the Kansas City area read that, and we all agreed it wasn't very good. One member, whose mother is Japanese, was outraged at how it misrepresented Japanese culture, and totally confused it with Chinese. Kind of like, "Chinese, Japanese, what's the difference" with a shrug of the shoulders.
