Please read the negative reviews

The negative reviews probably explain themselves.

One states that the show starts off great but the reviewer quite dislikes the third series. Even though the examples of why they liked the preceding episodes actually took place in the third series. This particular reviewer had also suggested "subtitles on is vital". I mean c'mon! Sorry - I mean, come on.

One review used the word "tripe" which makes it very difficult not to stereotype.

Another writer calls on "white Liberal guilt" which doesn't particularly lay the groundwork for an objective, unbiased review. Especially when there are no other reasons for disliking it.

One more with the word "tripe", and not much else there.

The last one to date is my favourite. All caps except the last three words, which is just "terrible" repeated. They also use the extremely successful comedian and theatre actor Lenny Henry as an example of what they consider poor. There's a lot to dissect with this review, in terms of who this person might be, why they would want to write a review like this, why are they are so angry, but most importantly - why on earth would they watch a programme so clearly not commissioned for them in the first place.

Personally, I very much have enjoyed it so far. The characters are fun and engaging. The plot interesting enough. The underpinning racial, ideological, cultural, etc. story has been well executed.

THE MUSIC WAS ALSO GREAT! That positivity is for you jamesstanley-36181. Not everyone is out to get you.
