User Reviews

 
Takes 5 episodes to get hooked.
4 March 2020 | by duffy74-210-123110See all my reviews

I was about to give up on this series until Ep6 of Season 1 when it FINALLY started getting interesting. If I'd had something better to binge on, I would've given up on a series that slow to build. Don't be mislead by the suggestion here that it contains explicit sex. It doesn't. Yes, there's lots of nudity but only from the waist-up, and it's always pretty much the same scenario. The drama makes it worth sticking with, however. All the girls look good and drama is pepped up also by generous touches of comedic dialogue--if you're not opposed to reading subtitles. I'd give it a 10 only if it was as sexy as Satisfaction from AU Cinemax.
