Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that You Don't Know Me is a British crime miniseries about a man on trial for murder. There's gun violence, physical assaults (without a lot of blood), and conversations about gang-related behavior, including drug dealing, retaliation, and forced prostitution. There's some visible sexual activity (lots of skin, but no nudity). Cursing is also frequent. Aston Martins are prominently visible in some episodes.
Is It Any Good?
The well-written, skillfully told four-part crime series offers an engaging narrative that never quite ends. As Hero's story unfolds, and details are introduced through his flashbacks, viewers learn the truth behind some key events. However, this information purposely creates more questions than answers. Meanwhile, viewers will find themselves negotiating their feelings about Hero's innocence or guilt, especially since his story is as much about love as murder. It's hard not to get caught up in this intense story world, which is what makes You Don't Know Me an entertaining series.
