A wonderful show
20 December 2017 | by talkayanSee all my reviews

If you are expecting a James Bond type action or a Hitchcock style suspense then you will be disappointed. This is about a regular next-door guy who has real world problems of his own and who deals with real world criminals. So if you love reality in dramas then this show is for you. Loved it!!
