I think it has a perception problem, as people see the plot and think it's going to be a crime thriller full of action. There is a small amount of well-placed action, but it's more a drama that depends on character interaction, so I think it threw people off. I loved it.
I'll have to check it out sometime.
Aaaaaand it's on Youtube.
