so heavily flawed from episode one
18 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

stupid screenplay with lot of unforgiven holes big enough to drive through a semi container truck! very highly unlikely scenarios and plots with illogical twists, so conveniently arranged for the development of the storyline. stupid female detective captain, stupid police organization, so easily to condemn a brother detective of their own. guy went to his ex-wife's home at night without calling first was against normal behavior any normal divorced husband would do, albeit a police detective. survived kid so readily to believe his father killed his mother, and his kid brother was killed in the same house while he was just spared? so where he hid himself in the small house? if the killer already targeted the ex-wife's family, he should have known there were 3 persons in the house, would he just killed two and left? the reason to kill this stupid cop's family was even shady without any explanation. did this guy hold some important, critical, dangerous information that might endanger the crime boss? if so, what was it? if the kids and other people in this stupid series already used iPhones, how could it possible that their desktops were still equipped with the obsolete floppy disk device and even the police still using the floppy disks? and if those disks held the important and deadly evidence and secret that would convict the accused, how could he brought them to his ex-wife's home. where was this stupid detective's actually lived? did he had his own living quarter? when he was transported to the prison, the other criminal just attacked him so easily with a ball pen with free hands without cuffs? after he ran away from the accident scene, he went to his ex-wife's new boy friend who's also a colleague and partner, he kicked open the front door, it should have seriously damaged the door and the door frame, so why his partner didn't find out there might be an intruder in his home and he was a detective! he won't detect his front door was heavily damaged? and still could use his key to open the damaged front door? on and on, this stupid mini-series played on and treated the viewers like morons. that' absolutely unacceptable, dude.
