What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Another series that deserved a lot more than a single season. Brilliantly dark - but apparently too dark for an American audience., it ended, unresolved, after only 22 episodes.

Sheriff Buck runs a small town because, it turns out, he does *favours* for people - favours which almost always turn out to have too high a price. They weren't signed in blood... but the Sheriff is too up-to-date for that.

He's not all-powerful though. He's he sometimes frustrated by people who won't sell out, occasional supernatural opposition and a (brilliantly-acted) kid, who is at the centre of this struggle between good and evil.little supernatural opposition
