A pretty intelligent show
15 August 2016 | by casablancavicSee all my reviews

I invested in this and I am glad I did, This makes a very interesting concept and the cast is very good and so is the direction, editing and the basic story.

Looking forward to see this on a big screen in the bear future as either a full feature movie or as a hour long drama TV show.

Original in composition, it will easily take hold of you and keep you reeled in.

Hopefully the story remains interesting and does not lose itself after a few episodes and get lousy or too far stretched out to the point where it holds nothing of interest - as so many shows do after a while.
