So nice to have to think...
9 January 2016 | by willb-957-594965See all my reviews

Stumbled across The Romeo Section by accident and am so glad I did.

Unlike so much pap on TV these days you have to think when you watch this show. The method of showing scattered vignettes of the various characters and the development of the protagonist had me from the beginning. I like not knowing what is going to happen. This process is not developed in some deceptive way, which is often the case in other shows where red herrings are thrown in because the writers don't know how to create tension, but by the gradual revelation of the characters various dynamics and their very human foibles and interactions. I particularly enjoyed the last three episodes as everything starts coming together. I found myself being moved by the various characters, even if I didn't like them as people or what they stood for.
