I started watching it about a year ago. My husband (then boyfriend) and I would watch an episode with dinner. Then IMMEDIATELY have to watch 2 more consecutive episodes until it was obviously time to go to bed (or else he would be late for work in the morning!).

It's rare to find a show like that. Not just that it has cliff-hanger endings ... but the characters were so complicated that you couldn't figure out how you felt about everything.
I've heard a lot about how it's so hard to watch and so violent and so traumatic ... but really, I what other directions could it take?
It's about cancer ... drugs ... infidelity ... murder ... all the bad things in life.
But I think it's all the bad things that make you realize the good. And in the end, that's what it's really about: Family, loyalty and friendship.
