There are ups and downs in this series, particularly because it takes it time to set the story and sometimes it gets extremely long (1:30 hours an episode!). However, it is the characters of this show that is so endearing, the long hours go by without a sweat. The friendships, emotions and relationships are explored through humor and poignancy, and is one of the most beautiful thing to watch. A definite must watch.
