This man needs to be on the Maury Povich Show and Cheaters
19 April 2013 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

I have never seen a mini series where there is only a handful of people I would spend two minutes with in my real life. The son and the 2 ladies on that boat. The rest repent but too late. The lead character needs to cry. He sound like he grew up in some trailer park in Mississippi not in North England. But I guess there types like him everywhere. In the first scene we see three people two adults and a little boy. The couple carry on, very much in love and the little boy is playing amongst them. What a lovely scene a family out with their son. Wrong, It was the father out with his married girlfriend professing his love and plans to marry each other. Mind he has a wife and that is his son he is dragging around on dates with his married girlfriend. Well the secret gets out and his girlfriend gets killed by her hubby and he kills himself. Now wait the bad person in not the married boyfriend, or the wife or even the hubby but the married boyfriends wife. He's lucky the Cheaters crew wasn't around because I would of rounded her hubby up for a ride and would of caught them red handed. Especially since he brought her son. So the next scene we see Big daddy(which he will now be known) crying and yelling at his wife. We are to believe she is some type of banshee, but we rarely see her and when we do I understand her anger. He picks up and takes the boy and leaves her with no money , nothing. The son and him start on their journey.

Now I am not going to tell the plot of this movie but I will give a breakdown of Big Daddy's activities 1)has a affair with married woman and brings his son along on their dates 2) He abandons his wife and takes his son simply because his girlfriend is killed by her hubby and she told them. What was she suppose to do? He is taking her son with him on dates!

3)Finds a wife to marry ( remember he is already married). She is nice enough and her husband owns a company that is doing good. Later we see him trying to move in on the business after the hubby dies and he marries her.

4)Wife has a sister. He is taken by her right away. He starts having a affair with her.

5) He gets the sister in law pregnant

6) Wife comes back. She is mad and has not done well since he abandoned her. He goes to jail for a year for Bigamy.

The son all through the mini series is seeing all of this. He is a adult in the second part and it is a wonder he is such a nice guy considering the creep the dad was. I am not sure if the lead male is suppose to be sympathetic or is he a public Service message. But I do know if he was a real person he could of been on Maury and Cheaters.

The show was entertaining and the acting was very good. Cairen Hinds was very handsome when he was young. I never saw him young like this or anything. So I can see how he could pull all of the ladies. But he was not a nice guy in anyway.
