Before I really knew what this was, Jonty described it to me as “like Weeds, but more bad-ass”. Having seen it now, I would agree 100% with that description.
It follows the early stages of a family man’s diagnosis with terminal cancer and subsequent attempt to make quick cash to leave to his wife and son before he dies. This involves his transformation from a timid nerdy school teacher to a local drug king-pin with a nothing-to-lose attitude. Fairly full-on and depressing themes, but contains just the right amount of dark comedic relief and action.
One of the best TV dramas I have seen in some time. Right up there with Deadwood and The Wire.
