A Pleasant Surprise that has Potential

(3 out of 5 stars)
"This is a difficult series to review. I would say that it is less than the sum of its parts.
There are several storylines that are extremely entertaining:
(1) the has-been rock and roll producer who wants to find one final "star act" before his career (and life) goes down in flames;
(2) the woman who suspects that her estranged father was always right about her husband's career prospects;
(3) another woman who suspects that her lover may be a mob enforcer/ contract killer;
(4) an illegal alien who is attempting to make it in America -- crossing the border with only the bloody shirt on his back.
However, I thought that each of these stories would have been better told as four distinctive full length movies than as they are presented here as a (very loosely) interwoven story.
The acting in the series is strong as is the writing in the majority of the episodes. But, in the 2nd Season, I would like a rationale as to why I should view this series as one complete narrative as opposed to a collection of fascinating short stories."
