They said it not me......
Well the series is called Queen Sugar and I can but agree.
There are some series out there that are so very American, they don't really travel all that well and I'm sorry but for me, this is one of them.
Whilst the series is nicely constructed I found it at the same time rather "sugary". The humanity has been polished out of the characters, leaving rather flat glossy caricatures, that are simply not that believable. As a result its hard for me, at least, to invest in this series.
Perhaps this is a shame, as there may be an interesting story on offer, but until the US takes a leaf from productions from say, the UK, who really know how to craft down to earth, very real, believable human interest based drama's, I'll be keeping my distance.
Six out of ten from me as there is decent direction and some reasonable acting on offer.
