The show captures viewers with its proximity to reality, people are used to living in debt and loans all over the world, the desire for easy earnings is getting higher every year, even very smart and strong people succumb to weaknesses.
It is with its realism that the series lures, shows that people are willing to risk their lives for easy money and are ready to take extreme measures, up to killing a person just to survive themselves.
The series showed life from two sides, namely that the financial situation divides people into two categories, where rich people do not take into account the poor and perceive them as animals that they can control and decide whether they live or die.
The series has many advantages. Colorful characters, visual, real scenery, musical accompaniment, talented actors, thoughtful details and much more.
But the most important thing is what moral issues the show raises and what message it carries.
What kind of morality can be "taken out" after viewing?
Here are just some examples.
A person does not know what he is capable of until he gets into a "hopeless situation".
They betray everything.
The rich and the poor are equally "bad" in their situation. Some are insanely boring, others are insanely hard.
Winning doesn't always give you a sense of satisfaction.
