  • This is an excellent series - great acting by the two main actors - very intriguing plot and suspense keeps on throughout all 8 episodes. Recommend it totally to others

  • Fantastic viewing! Was intrigued throughout.

  • Highly watchable although seedy characters might put some people off.

  • Worth watching....great puzzle

  • The first disc started off so slow and McConaughey changes his appearance drastically throughout this. My husband and I continued to watch because it was cold and we were too lazy to get up and change it. The funny thing is, we got sucked into the story. Disc one ended and we had to know what happened next.....it was like that for every disc. We watched the whole series......loved it. It is very seedy type story and some of the characters are truly hateful but the leading men were fantastic, acting was what kept you coming back for more.
