Outstanding drama
7 December 2010 | by gospic-ivaSee all my reviews

I have watched this mini series a long, long time ago. And never have I watched anything like it again. I loved every bit of it. The characters are very lifelike, realistic. It is not portrayed in black and white. They all have their virtues and their flaws. From the first minute of the series you are drawn into the plot. The best thing about it is that it'a a good entertainment for both male and female. It has crime and it has romance, and I cannot begin to tell you how thrilling it is. All of the actors give their great performances, but I have to say that Tom Long is really, really great in portraying a thief with a good heart. To anyone who wants to enjoy good TV, I sincerely recommend DO OR DIE.
