awesome series for lovers of great acting
8 May 2006 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

I wrote this comment because I'm tired of those people who keep bitching that the series is too slow, or that there was not enough action. This series is indeed hard to follow (the story is quite complicated) but from the first until the last episode I was impressed by the great performances of the actors.Yes it is not an action series, or a detective, thriller or whatever. It's a very different style of television, which demands concentration and good thinking by the viewer but for a lot of people this is already too much asked, as they are used to popular formats on TV, fast action series like C.S.I (solving 56 crimes in a half hour). So it is is a slow, difficult TV show, but it grabbed me by the throat from the first until the last minute. If you really like high-skilled actor performances, it's just a MUST SEE !
