It is rare to see a series that looks fresh and original- one that catches the attention, and manages to sustain it. This is one of those rare gems. The series looks great- wonderfully dark, with imaginative filming; the acting is first class, and the bitter-sweet story is very memorable. One of those shows that manages to be just the right length. The final episode comes far to soon, which is the hallmark of a great series- the story is sustained over a small number of high quality, and the series ends before the story can ware thin. A great series.
