I thought it was an enjoyable series full of good dialog and some serious character development. It took a look at drugs in America from a perspective of a different group with each season. The criminals, the cops, the media, the docks etc.. There were slow bits to it but by that time you are already invested. There is a very libertarian viewpoint i think that comes across from the series. Also one of the most bad ass gay characters ever to exist.
