The series lays out its world and characters briskly and intelligibly, and the early episodes invest the fantasy clichés with some elegance and picturesqueness.

Palmer maintained an admirable balance of defiant competence and bewilderment at her situation. The discovery of the show's title will be in part, of course, Diana's own - of her past, the past of her people, her powers and her future.
