It takes your breath away
7 June 2019 | by perverzSee all my reviews

I've Never written a Review on imdb but this pilot just took my breath. It crushed me in pieces. You see the plot unfold and realize 30 years later there is no significant change. People still beeing pressured to tell lies. Criminal Justice is non existent. Seeing the cops talking, hitting and pressuring the boys in to telling lies makes me so damn angry and sad at the same Time.

The actors doing a great Job, the screenplay is awesome, the whole unfairness of the situation/setting gives you goosebumps and leaves you speechless. The Pilot caught me off guard and gave me shiveres.
