Seems pretty amusing, I've only seen through disc 3 at the moment. (4's been near the top of my queue since I joined up again...along with several other things that aren't in stock either. Heh.)

It's about a kid who suddenly becomes the main suspect in a murder (on the anniversary of his brothers disappearance if I recall correctly) at first, and plays out from there. It's the only detective story I've liked in a while. :) Very odd and interesting characters, and the whole scenario is just a little strange. Obviously, having not watched the whole series, I don't know it all yet. :)

I had seen trailers for it and it did seem intriguing to me, especially since I like the detective type series'. At first when I saw your topic I thought you were talking about the movie Spiral (Uzumaki). That was something else that I had wanted to see but someone said they didn't like it and turned me off it a little bit.

although I assume that was meant to be funny, I lost my sense of humor...I think it went to Canada

There's really no relation. Scooby Doo didn't have people getting killed, or a real overarching plot that I remember. Hell, it had nothing anyone over 12 would enjoy really. :p

So is your official review that it is a series worth watching?

Definately. It's fairly unique.

It's really bizarre, though, that the main character doesn't seem to care enough to actually get more details from the people he's helping about the big secret. :p You'd think he's earned enough cred by now. (End of disc 5) Maybe he just likes solving mysteries, I guess, but you'd think...
well...I dunno :)
Clearly his partner cares about that bit...
