I enjoyed the series overall, but was often distracted by gratuitous and irrelevant directorial shenanigans - such as the playing of English-language country songs loudly (for what purpose I'm not sure) and flashing sequences of past events at inappropriate and distracting times. It's a shame because the story line could have been presented much better.
