Our daughter enjoyed this so I have watched it after the release. I think my husband and I must have been watching a different drama to most of you (and our daughter)!
We both felt it lacked drive, imagination, and true drama. It was superficial and most action came from nowhere. Characters did and said things that appeared “out of character “ and the monologues were tedious and expository.
It seems to me to have barely shifted the news forward from today and was altogether rather thin. The family was a group of “types” or cyphers employed by the writer to give life to various ideas.
I wasn’t impressed with the writing and found some of it really irritating e.g. - “why are you selling the house” “to pay for help to find Viktor” - and 5 minutes later they can share the proceeds of the sale 4 ways (no more mention of Viktor).
Wanted to like it but was glad it was soon over!

HRT shortage - is it affecting you?
