Love this series with fresh story line each week
28 September 2017 | by riverqueen16See all my reviews

I am thoroughly enjoying "Ransom". It captures and keeps my attention throughout each episode. The story lines are varied and fresh and depend on intellect rather than brawn and muscle. The interactions between the characters could be more developed but they do form a cohesive team. The acting is on par with other top rated TV shows. I definitely recommend this series.
