The end has come too soon.
18 June 2014 | by ljs3799See all my reviews

Oh why...

Finally, there was a show that was perfect for me. I love the wait of a week between each episode and especially with this type of series, where cliffhangers are oft-repeated. Finally, I had something to look forward to on a Tuesday.

But now, it has ended..

But what an end it was! Shock and emotion are the two things this finale provoked in me. The shock was ironic because I knew I would be shocked, nevertheless it came as a surprise, if that makes any sense. I especially loved the use of tense music in various acts, where the only sounds to be heard were sudden abstract sounds, which increased the enjoyment as it made me feel so much more uncertain and uncomfortable about the whole situation, in the best possible way.

In the end, justice was served and the characters got what they deserved, in the good way as well as the bad way.

This was definitely one of the best series of 2014 and one of the best criminal drama/comedies of the last 10 years.

Please, please, please let there be Season 2.
