Hands down, the best TV series I ever watch.

So awesome, they're like Ocean's Eleven!

avatar

this is at top notch show. Great plots and acting and very enjoyable to watch.

Entertaining, but mediocre. There is no over-arching story, which is not not my cup of tea. Well-acted, however I'm not too impressed with the plots. I'm 4 seasons in and there's literally zero character development.

My guilty pleasure. Too bad it is not available for streaming anywhere online :"( In serious need for re binge.
