CHEESY AF
29 November 2019 | by flynnflonSee all my reviews

I could barely make it through two episodes.

The illegal drug trade has long provided material for many fictional/non-fictional programs. In my opinion, the best way to cover this fascinating topic, is to focus on the humanity behind the subjects (smugglers, dealers, users, cops).

The WORST way to cover this genre, is by trying to overdramatize and romanticize the content. Unfortunately, that is what this series does.

Through eye-rolling (totally scripted) visual montages, or by adding ridiculously over the top music/sound effects to accompany the American tabloid style of narration, this viewer was left with a permanent raised eyebrow.

It feels like those involved with the trade, were instructed to act as clownish as possible, in front of the camera. Slow-mo posing with guns and money? Check. Slow-mo shots of breaking down the drugs, for the street? Check. Talking about how hard they are? Check. Cringeworthy commentary about "the life"? Check. Using a trap beat over every visual cutaway? Check.

If you like your documentary style programs to feature zero substance, you'll enjoy this.

Otherwise, there are plenty of other sources which have covered this topic, much more accurately.
