Is It Any Good?

It's an old story: average people win the lottery and face new problems thanks to suddenly becoming rich. Still, the show is compelling thanks to how the individual dramatic (and sometimes humorous) character-driven narrative threads are woven into the larger fabric of the family-like relationship of the group. Also interesting is the way each of these fictional stories highlights the array of consequences that real lottery winners face after winning the cash, including a loss of privacy and having to deal with people who believe they are entitled to cash gifts.

Viewers will be able to identify with some of these characters, all of whom are likable but flawed in some way. It's also frustrating to watch individuals and relationships deteriorate as greed takes over reason and characters fail to stay true to their core values and priorities. Overall, it's an entertaining series that will make you wonder what you would do if you won the lottery.
