For someone who lives in The Netherlands, where health care is actually part of a healthy part of ‘caring for each other’ through taxes and paid jobs, part of this storyline is quite ridiculous. A child in need of certain drugs would normally qualify for such a treatment. Aside that, that motivation is the one that grabs me the most at my nonexistent balls. The woman catching her husband cheating and then that he spend most of their money on her is quite devastating, but no reason to rob anyone. The young mother in a custody battle: again, I can sympathise with that.
Anyhow: that’s how all this starts. Given that there’s a health care thing involved, I was reminded of Breaking Bad immediately. After all, that series also bases its existence upon the nonexistence (in the USA) of a healthcare system where just everybody can rely on.
I was also reminded of the latest Ghostbusters, because of the all female cast. But these are better cast. They are all equally important, part of the deal. They come from different backgrounds, yes (one divorced or at least broke up, two married) but they all have their own types of trouble. And their own ways of dealing with those. And it just baffled me.
The gangmembers I was less impressed by. No gangmember would ever respond in any of those ways.
Other than that, the first few episodes sure look promising.
