Credible and gripping drama - that's interesting!
Everyone should watch this. Epic and novelistic in its scope the series is believable, informative, interesting, well-acted and a based-on-real-life drama that won't put you to sleep. The way that the lives of the 4 principle characters are intertwined through the 30 years that the series maps is dramatic brilliance. Also the police corruption plot that links all 4 characters is wonderfully subtle. All the cast stand out and as the story progresses, the level to which we become involved with them just shows how good the writing is.
