Sex, alcohol, money, drugs and messed up families= the receipt for a TV series that just might show you that you are one of the lucky people out there. In this series you will find strong, well-developed characters, a realistic storyline and funny moments hidden inside the drama.
The show is a remake after a British TV series that has almost an identical script. Anyhow the US version is a very successful copy I might say and I am glad that they succeed on copying it without ruining everything.
