I just don't understand where the critics of this show is comming from
24 May 2018 | by bhjhopsSee all my reviews

First of, Chumberlain is so great that watching it just to see him is worth your time. Also I just can't see how the show isn't relatable at all, I mean sure it isn't relatable to everyone but you can't say that it isn't relatable at all. Because the charecter clearly has a drug problem that pretty much ruins his relationship to the people around him which probably every drug addict can relate to in some way. The seriers also show the root of his drug addiction and lifestyle which alot of people also can relate to. The charecter is supressing his pain from his childhood and abusive father.

Also the show has some amasing tension and charecter build up. The scene from the second episode when the house lady is carrying a plate of porslin and is questioned by David is a wonderfully directed scene.

All in all a show that is well worth both seeing and analysing.
