Unexpectedly great show; I was doubtful... but it was great!
I'm giving this show a 10 because -- while not perfect, and certainly not very original being that it is based on a classic film -- the series was very fun to watch and, after bingeing on it, I was left thinking about it for days after and wanting more. That, in a world filled with forgettable crap (both original and unoriginal alike), was enough to merit a 10-star review from yours truly.
To be honest, while the inspiration is obvious, Snatch (the series) is really it's own thing, and although it maybe isn't as "cool" and "cutting edge" as the Guy Ritchie masterpiece, it most definitely has better developed (versions) of the characters that I became far more attached to as each episode passed. It's no small thing to create (or...adapt) fictional characters that a person can care about.
At the end of the day, I gave it a chance because I'm always willing to check out the (oftimes underrated) acting talents of one of the Harry Potter kids, and while Grint certainly delivers, I found that I stayed through until the end of the last episode because the whole thing is just a plain, old, joyous ride.
I really hope they make more. I wouldn't feel terribly... unfinished... with the way it ended, but I would certainly love to see more of these characters doing adventurous crime stuff.
