Each scene is so well woven into the next that if you aren't careful you could miss something important; and every little detail in this show is something important to the story as a hole! I do think that this could have ran as a movie or special, but the fact that this show exists as 5 episodes is something that makes this show so wonderful! The feeling of "what will happen next" and the impending cliffhangers and dangers of what could possibly become of each character is something only a show can deliver; because if you're watching a movie or special its all delivered, straightforwardly.
I think the fact that this was a 5 episode show allowed the viewers to honestly see the reality and truth of how life for everyone (from the poor to the broken to the rich to the criminals to the police to the ordinary) can deliver some very swift, very cruel and heartbreaking situations. This show definitely brought to its viewers the truth, good and bad, of reality for each person involved.
PS: I think (possibly maybe) people are expecting this to be a hard, dark, intense detective/criminal/thriller/police/mystery/etc.. genre type show that a lot of people are not giving this the chance it deserves! Please, though this may be hypocritical, do not let other comments and/or reviews sway you from watching, reading, or doing whatever you want!
