Too long, Great sound design, Disappointing, Great set

See it if you want to see a show with some potential and a good base idea that should still be in development

Great acting, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if you want to see a family drama with some humor

Don't see it if you don't want to see many depressing topics of real life played out
