If you like shows that depict life in other places this does a very good job of doing that. Unfortunately the automated dialogue replacement, or dub, or whatever they call it is absolutely horrendous. For anyone that doesn't know what I'm referring to it's when the audio is scraped and the sound is added later. Sometimes the audio is offset and what they are saying doesn't coincide with their lips. Anyone that has watched a Sergio Leone movie will understand what I'm talking about, of course his had a little more professional workmanship done, but then again there wasn't much you had to splice in for that particular genre. Adding sound after the fact especially when you have sex scenes have to be done right and they missed the mark completely. Other than that the writing and acting was really good and for the most part I enjoyed it.
