You'll cry when, at the end of "To Say I Love You", the young stutterer realises he'll never be able to say the things to his girlfriend that he wants to say. Fitz's final chat with the put-upon Catholic housewife in "Brotherly Love" is truly disturbing, but heartbreaking too. You'll feel for each of these characters, which is an amazing feat by all concerned in the making, considering their crimes are so graphically portrayed, and the show is so unflinching about revealing the kinds of effects violent crime has on survivors, and the families of the victims.
This is classy television. It's not without it's faults, of course. The standard does tend to take a nose-dive when Jimmy Mc Govern's not writing not by much, sometimes, but always perceptibly and the quite graphic nature of most of the episodes means this won't be to everyone's taste, but these are small flaws.
This is wonderful stuff. It's impossible to overstate this fact, so i'll say it again: this is really classy television. Start your free trial. Find showtimes, watch trailers, browse photos, track your Watchlist and rate your favorite movies and TV shows on your phone or tablet!
