Storyline

A thriving but underground drugs business is being run by Dushane (Ashley Walters) and his friend Sully (Kane Robinson) to become the richest men on the block. To live rich Dushane and Sully go into partnership with top don Bobby Raikes ('Geoff Bell (I)'). Rivalry with Kamale (Scorcher) and his gang results in their loan from Raikes being stolen, and they swear revenge. Thirteen-year old Ra'Nell (Malcolm Kamulete) gradually gets lured into the gang and drug business as his mother Lisa (Sharon Duncan-Brewster) has a breakdown and is hospitalised - with devastating consequences.

Not the end of it
20 March 2018 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

So far I could only watch the first two seasons, because they are the only ones available. But as season 2 ends, it is very obvious that there has to be more. Or at least there was more planned. And all indicates that there might be more coming. But until that happens, all we can talk about are the first two seasons. Though some may feel that 4 episodes are not enough to be called a season. Whatever the case, the production is really good.

The language is on spot, the characters are believable and there is enough drama to hold everything together. Now it may not be as thorough as "The Wire", but its microcosmos still works. Relationships are explored and everything connects more or less. It also does not hold back on the punches, which is really good. Shocking and sometimes frustrating and not really meant to root for everyone involved, this is classy nevertheless
