Slow, slower, slowest
29 April 2006 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

The story about a reunion of friends was presented in the media as one of the best series ever made. This was probably because Tom Lenaerts - a popular celebrity in Flanders - was the producer. This was his first series he produced. But what a mistake it was. Lenaerts himself told the public that the first 2 episodes (6 in total) were hard to follow. He was right, you had to be very focused to follow the first episode because a lot of people were introduced and sometimes it wasn't very clear who was who, there were a lot of flash backs,... But as said, we were curious to see the following episodes. But it was so disappointing. Each episode was more of the same. Nothing actually happened. Now and then there was something new you learned, but that was it. I settled my hope on the last episode, but again, we learned few new things about the story...

If there was a bit more action and a better end it would have been less worse. Much to do about nothing
