From the first five minutes, I was hooked. And I was hook line and sinkered into thinking it was going to be a teenage angst road movie! Not so!
The entirely Adult theme, off kilter storyline and the entirely believable yet totally surreal characters draw you inwards and downwards on an inescapable maelstrom of a tale that forces you to care about the protagonists and their all too tragically inevitable fate.
8 episodes of 20 minutes each are just right for a full evening's viewing.
I DARE you to try and stop watching half way through.
