Started very good but....
29 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

When they started broadcasting "Witse" several years ago, I really looked forward seeing it. I saw the most episodes of the first season, but after a while the quality the episodes started to fall. In the beginning I was satisfied and I thought Hubert Damen was giving an pretty good acting performance. The stories were good and it was an entertaining new police series. But then there where a few episodes with a very weak story and there were several scenes where the acting was extremely bad. It almost looked like some weak school play. I was very disappointed because it started very good. Maybe the script writing and acting became routine. I don't know what happened afterwards. Maybe the screenplays became better, maybe they didn't..? I don't know because I stopped watching.
