20 STAR REVIEW!!!!!!!
THIS SHOW IS UNBLIPING BELIEVABLE! ABSOLOUTLY INCREDIBLE. AMAZING GREAT ACTING, DRAMA, GREAT ACTION, FUNNY, AND DEAD SERIOUSE. There was another review asking why this isn't more well know. I AGREE! HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE? THIS IS TOP NOTCH BADBLIPENESS. Honestly, everything is in place for a phenomenal series. I got through the first episode and was thinking, wtheck, it didnt just end, then I remembered it was a series. BEST SERIES IVE WATCHED SO FAR. I WATCH ALOT OF TV. I WORK FROM HOME, AND LIVE ALONE, IM AN EXPERT ON GREAT SHOWS. THIS IS TOP NOTCH. WATCH IT.

2nd Part of review:
This is to the director- WHAT WERE U THINKING? What the heck did u do??? WHY WOULD U RUIN THIS MASTERPIECE with stupid simple decisions? OMFG.
MESSUP #1: No one in their right mind would cut up body in kitchen knowing they were expecting police company in a matter of minutes. And no way there wouldnt be a massive mess.
2. Why would you make these characters this stupid? You didnt even give them a natural level of common sense. What you did was try and develope ways to make the scenes have more 'on the edge of your seat' aspect. It didnt need that. The story is good enough as it is. You made it unbelievable, and in the process made it seem like the audience is stupid enough to believe in this hogwash. WE ARE NOT AS STUPID AS YOU MIGHT THINK.
I simply just want to scream at the dang tv when I see these stupid mistakes destroy this otherwise perfect series. You are an idiot for these decisions. I now understand why this series hasn't taken off like it should of. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE AND SHOULD BE FIRED. I would be pissed off if I had funded this and you made these types of decisions on my show.
FOR THE AUDIENCE READING THIS- Still watch the show, it is still great, but just know you are going into an incredible show where the director has made some poor choices. I hope they fix this problem because this would be something I think everyone would enjoy watching if we eliminated this incompetence bull that's being added into this show. I have faith.

Don't hold your breath
If you expect this to get even maybe passably "good" after a few episodes, don't hold your breath. There is not one character to like or root for, not one character that has anything like charisma or Hollywood good looks, and none of them evolve despite all of the horrors that happen to them. The people are implausible, the plot completely unbelievable and ridiculous. Even the scenery is a bore. That being said, it gets two stars, because there were a few moments that were funny and at some point I was curious where the plot would go. Plenty of gore and stupidity, if that's your thing.

How do more people now know about this show!!??
Could have been boring and redundant but they keep it fresh, interesting and even real (real with the aspect of how a group of friends can actually be in real life where no one is perfect). I don't see how they could have made this any better EXCEPT for one thing. I wish they gave "the guy on the bike" more screen time.....loved that character! Oh, and they should have gave more depth on why the character that invited them on the trip was so hostile towards them at times. TWO THUMBS UP! Would definitely watch a 2nd season especially how it ended.

Series version of the Hangover
Yet another movie of grown men making too many bad decision, have no idea how to use common sense, quickly dissociate themselves from the death of a friend and can’t get anything done right. Sad and pathetic show. Instantly became background noise while I did something else. And on the rare occasion I did focus on the story line it was nothing but one hot mess after another.

I love this show
It's really just one long movie that has been cut up into episodes. It's great. I've sat through it twice and love it

Fun, Funny and Slightly Thrilling
This show had a slightly painful first episode. The cinematography and music was an odd choice but once I got used to it and the characters I really grew to love this show. There was some slight dark humor, slight blood and gore, a good amount of action and interesting use of characters. At times the character actions could be extremely frustrating and just when you felt like they may have learned a lesson they somewhat reversed course. The situations , while maybe a bit unrealistic, were certainly entertaining and came with plenty of twists and turns. It wont wow you but it was definitely a fun ride.

Awesome Show!!
Great Show!! If you love tv thrillers like Narcos this is for you. Amazon should also replace Comedy with Dark, this is not a comedy.
