A series of standalone stories with forced drama and poor acting, simple as that. The problem with a standalone series like this is you only have 45 minutes to try and create an engaging story and engaging characters in a limited amount of time and that just doesn't really happen.
A 45 minute "drama" about such incredible epics as... a car gets scratched and two brothers (one a "hard man" and one a spineless wuss) decide to blame a skip driver and block the road. 45 minutes straight of people going "MOVE UR CAR", "No, you apologise!" "No, MOVE UR CAR!!". "Maybe we should give in" "No we shouldn't"
Five minutes later: "MOVE UR CAR," "No, you apologise!" "No, MOVE UR CAR!!!!!" "Maybe we should give in" "No, we shouldn't"
Five more minutes later: "MOVE UR CAR" etc.
45 minutes and you see the same scene 5-10 times with the characters saying exactly the same lines of dialogue, the exact same scenes happening and then a forced resolution based on a massive contrivance when the show realised it needed to end.
This is not good drama. It's barely even drama. The characters do not progress, they don't change, they don't learn anything and they don't do anything.
