season 3 - very good with some flaws
8 October 2019 | by braquecubismSee all my reviews

This is one of the better shows I've seen in the last few months. 6 (3 out of 5) is good to very good. I found Season 3, without seeing season 1&2- I intend to watch there are some flaws in the various plots, & constructed stories and characters. Some episodes I like better than others. Yes, you could rewrite some of the characters. someone made a point that there is a thread thru out- a fatal flaw or act, with consequences, and in the end, even with bad results, the key character learns a lesson and is better for it. Everyone learns a lesson, by being the better "man". there is an overlap of characters, key in one episode shows up in another. All live on the same working class neighborhood street, in attached houses. don't they plant trees in England; would brighten the streets. In many cases it's hard to say what they could have done better, bec. it would take an entire rewrite- I can easily see why there are a lot of 10s. but it's not as good as Better Call Saul, or Breaking Bad, but a good watch with some extra sentimentality. thrown in. the flaws will bother some, some flaws more than others.
