User Reviews

 
Good acting and direction can't save sadistic writing.
18 September 2017 | by dojiijiiSee all my reviews

The plot and resolution for this would have been acceptable for a movie, but for an entire TV series it's just too much. If you like watching the lead character make excuses for a psychopath boyfriend who ruins other people's lives for her you may like this; otherwise go watch something else. The writers must like bad things happening to good people, as that's the majority of what happens here. You can watch a few episodes to get an idea of what it's like, but after episode 4 or 5 it's pretty much all the same, with the ending providing no resolution or closure.
