A really well made first episode. Great writing and acting. To keep our attention while at the same time introducing the characters was captivating. Can't wait for the next episode.
One of the most compelling tv shows I've seen in a long time that left me gasping for more. It's heart wrenching, inspiring and cuts close to the bone on real life family dramas. I absolutely enjoyed this episode and want to tell the world! A must watch.
Just happened to be flicking thru and came across this half way thru, got me hooked straight away, great acting, very natural, looking forward to next episode.
