Similar to another review, I rented this not knowing it was a mini-series. But unlike him/her, I found it terrible. My wife and I set back in awe while this show went on....hitting pause every few minutes to discuss one thing or another. The writing is bad, the acting ranges from terrible to mediocre. How can you relate to this? I don't care if I have had similar situations, this show cannot draw me into it. Maybe if I was 10 this would have been more interesting. Why is this 25 year old man playing a high school teenager (the kid from Fresh back in 1994). I know plenty of young men that went to juvenile detention for longer than 1 year and didn't come out with such a chip on their shoulder. The sentences didn't seem natural...I have seen better writing in high school theater. What mail room manager takes a brief case to work everyday? There were too many small errors like this. On a positive note, some of the scenery was put together well..there was close attention to detail in their home. I also have to admit that I didn't go past the second episode.
