DVD1 is great, excellent storyline and actors.
Then I tried to watch DVD2, I noticed that They replaced all actors.
I have never experienced this with any show.
It looks like they fired everybody and then they hired family members.
They also replaced the script writer because the story was weak.
My advice, only watch DVD1 and quit. do not spoil it.
