.. take the time early on.. you will be rewarded
3 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This some of the finest TV programming you will come across today.. with numerous performances that just leave you in awe of the talent exhibited. Look at most any actor in this show, and you will see something special. It could take a couple episodes to get 'hooked'.. but once you're 'in'.. you will NOT think of leaving again. There are so many top notch performances, it's hard to single out any one of them, but go on Bing.com and view all the images for Emma Rigby. She's not only got acting talent (proven by her outstanding performance in PW.. more than holding her own alongside the amazing Polly Walker).. but she is in addition without question, one of the most intensely alluring women on the planet. The list of high quality work goes on and on, involving almost every cast member. This is truly what all TV dramas should be striving for.. and what viewers should understand is made to look so easy, but only comes with much talent, hard work, and extreme dedication.
