Did we miss something on diversity?

Horrible story development

This show has some of the worst development in a story I have ever seen. When a character could easily do something to finish the story or advance the plot, the character does the total opposite, and makes the story go on even longer, and everything worse. The writing of these characters are horrible, and drag the the regular 45 min show to feel like its 2 hours long. Horrible story and do not reccomend

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Next series

Breathe of fresh air I love this and only on episode 4 but don't want to be told there isn't a second series...does anyone know if there will be more? Great new and fresh storyline and needing more!!
