I was surprised by how good this show is. It is balanced, representing both sides of the story (without being preachy), and it does so in an intriguing, though sometimes odd, way. The show incorporates modern background music, which is a little disorienting. Also, there are these strange dream sequences that don’t exactly make sense or connect into the otherwise realistic story line. Apart from these two aspects, it is a wonderful show and the actors are amazing. It is well worth a watch.
