I had seen advertisements on TV for this show, and I thought this was going to be another Only Fools and Horses, Auf Widersein Pet, genre of show, and for the comedy side of it, you can see it.

The first episode dropped us with a few bombshells, and I'm enticed to come watch next week's show.

I hope this show continues for a while yet, it has great potential to become a classic.
