Not my cup of tea. The plot started out intriguing enough, but after a while it got predictable (for me).

This is one episode of Criminal Minds extended to five episodes miniseries. If you've never seen the standard, generic American police-procedural from CBS, then you may like this drama.

Just so that people don't make the same mistake I made: If you have a weak stomach, don't watch it when you eat dinner. It's definitely not as bad as most gory movie, but for a TV drama it has some pretty bad scenes.

I think this was very typical WOWOW stuff. Very serious, very grim, very good story, rather short, and ultimately a little forgettable. Kind of like a crime novel you finish on a long train ride.
If you like crime dramas, I would definitely recommend it though. The big stations tend produce crime dramas that are a little corny, but WOWOW usually stands for quality. I also was a little meh about the last episode, but the first episodes were really good.

@lonelily Yes, I also think the last episode was the weakest, but still an exciting drama overall. :)
I don't hate him either, but I think he need more experience in acting.
lonelily 19 Sep, 2015
@hidde yep, same ! i agree on both your spoilers~
i thought the last episode was not up to the first ones, and was a bit of a let down and disappointing, which is a bit of a pity and too bad because i thought the rest was very good.
and at the same time, as much as i like him and have nothing against him, Furukawa Yuuki isn't such a great and exceptional actor (imo) so i guess his acting didn't help. *shrug*

@lonelily Thats what I thought too. xD
When a popular actor appear as cameo/supporting guest = suspicious.
I think I can use this theory for tantei no tantei too.

Nevetheless, it was a well done show, nothing really new but exciting and well directed. Especially the part when they are searching for the victim, so thrilling.

But I'm getting tired of those crazy cartoony villain who like to laugh and shout. So when Furukawa act like that it was a bit dissapointing.

it was nice !
although, you pretty much figure out everything with just the first 2 episodes...
i mean, come on ! who uses Furukawa Yuuki as a cameo ??? to me it was so obvious he was Ptolemy ! -.-

there wasn't any REAL BIG revelations, but, it somehow was still very gripping and thrilling, i enjoyed it a lot.
