Very good !
17 October 2015 | by adamww-71263See all my reviews

I see a lot of people complaining about how it's horrible to the kids, the kids are horrible anyway, some even after they go in. I know they're young but some of the stuff they do is terrible.

I absolutely loved this show, it was nice to watch a couple of episodes whilst laying in bed falling asleep and finishing what I missed in the morning.

I'm only up to season 4 but I'll watch the rest eventually.

The criminals stories are interesting too, how it started out so small but turned into something life changing.

Hopefully this goes on for a LONG TIME!
