Not Bad at all....
27 November 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Having read the present reviews beforehand I must admit that I had mixed feelings when I started to watch the show. I think the viewer will be pleasantly entertained instead. I've watched the characters unfold in the first two episodes and could appreciate the 'underbelly' humour that is continuously present in the lines and performances of the well-cast actresses and actors. This is not meant as hilarious entertainment; rather, it is the subtle dynamics of close acting that does the trick. The environment is set up very nicely. This is not a decor. Not at all, this is almost a reality show in its set up. So, let's see how this series develops in time.
