While it is not completely fair to review a title without having seen it all in this case I have to admit that it was the disappointment advising me to proceed anyway.
BS starts well with a nice setting (in terms of the idea behind a small- town family crime, not in terms of the budget for photography and scenic design: that is pretty poor for sure), a gripping mystery, lots of people to get to know and sympathetic protagonists (and "villains"). But by the 3rd-4th episode (more than halfway still to go) the writers run out of ideas and everything falls apart: not even the actors believe in what they're doing and the drama-thriller becomes a soap full of tears, fake tension, stupid cops, even more stupid villains and huge plot holes.
Actually you can't blame the actors much with the lines/scenes they're provided but nonetheless you'll find yourself hoping for someone to kill someone else to show some sign of REAL life.
Enjoy it until it gets boring and unbelievable, then drop it and imagine how it could have ended: you'll do a better job than the writers for sure.
A humble suggestion for the writers: if you need to fill a certain format and have a good idea for a setting and a finale (at least i hope so for the "finale" part, otherwise it would make no sense how you dragged everything this way) don't expect that creating countless convoluted ways to get to the point will do the trick. Paradoxically a little less poorly designed "clues" and "drama" behind every single character and some more character depth would have helped to get far enough from a soap for 70yo grandmas or a bad "Columbo" episode. Unfortunately everyone acts so dumbly and superficially that you soon start not caring for them.
