Stuck. Φοβεροοοοοο
11 October 2013 | by sir_1973See all my reviews

Being fan of British TV, i was hooked and couldn't stop this series. Has everything. Plot, dark and right timing. Great TV. The characters are natural and great acting from all of them. The suspense comes at right levels each episode and there is no way to stop until you find what will come next.

There are some very ... i don't know the right word(not with the bad meaning) with "The Wire". The characters are almost real like the classic good British TV.

The atmosphere is not annoying dark and the lines between "Right and Wrong" are not clear, (like real life).

Absolutely RECOMMENDED...
