I was a little apprehensive when reading the launch stories for this series. Being touted as "from the producers of Hormones" I was expecting another teen bop kind of drama. Don't get me wrong: Hormones has its place as an amazing piece of work, but, in the end, it's just another teen story. Boy was I wrong. The teasers all showed sport and excitement. Could the final product live up to that hype? The good: The actors are amazing! The sportsmanship, the comradery, the brothership all felt through their performances! The stunts were totally believable! Sports can be dangerous, but these actors were actually in the action! The action! Wow! From the opening scene there never was a slow moment! The epic: That soundtrack! Those emotional songs! Perfection! The characters! Well rounded as 8 episodes can make them! They did not feel flat! Just the amount of background to set up their issues! Even the background characters become part of the team, they don't feel like fillers. The story! Wow! Clearly set-up, well executed. Never left the audience wanting! The creative use of the camera to create tension, slow motion, zooms! Superb! The director (can't remember his name) has produced amazing work in the past and it shows here! All in all an amazing story, if short. Takes Thai Drama to another level and in another direction! Great start to the rest of Project S!
