I am greatly delighted with your new detective drama Father and Son! I have been following most of them with my student, but this one struck me with! superb acting and I felt as if it were a real life story . I am really looking forward to the next episodes.

I love this show! so thrilling! I think the father has something to hide, the wife has discovered it (or is about to) and he's trying to fix up the mess he's made!
