It has all the ingredients of a quality drama series - good acting, characters that engage you, and an intricate well-paced story full of suspense, changes in fortune, shocks and surprises. It also has a strong feel of realism. In lots of similar tv, when guns fire it's almost part of the scenery. People routinely miss or dodge. In this, when someone pulls a trigger, you can imagine yourself being hit.
I don't quibble with the positive reviews - lots of people obviously loved it - but do be aware that it is so gritty it makes you feel you are not just watching grit, you can practically taste it. The characters are nearly all unattractive: either nasty, ugly, spiteful, stupid, treacherous or a combination of the above. The sex scenes are close ups of sweaty spotty skin. The happy scenes (there aren't many of these) are close ups of sweaty spotty faces blotched with the effects of drink or drugs. It is as though the producers were playing a game to make the viewer feel uncomfortable or appalled in new ways at every moment. I quite liked that, but it isn't for everyone.
If you get it please don't look at the back of box 3 as it contains a massive spoiler in bold type.
Towards the end of series 3 it became, in my view, very implausible. I won't give any details as it will spoil. By all means watch it and give me your own view.
