I can't be the only one watching this surely?
The fourth series is very gripping so far.

My wife's binged on it for the last week or so. I've grown to like it, but I'm finding the current series with the Mafiaoso stretching credibility a little.

It'd be a good binge watch. Series 1 takes time to find its feet, but series 2 really is excellent.

In what way?

To be honest I don't expect too much realism from this series, after all they've gone from being a street gang to owning half the industrial wealth of The Midlands in under ten years. And yet we barely see anyone working!

Well , nearly finished series one , it's ok. I don't like the lead role much , so far he lacks summat. It has borrowed a lot from Sky's Boardwalk Empire , smart bro , dumb bro whisky and cigarettes abound. He isn't that smart either , the Irish mole hardly was the best at hiding the fact she was a wrong un.
I'll give it a little longer but it needs to improve.

Series 2 is where it comes into its own. I would give that a go definitely, unless you're not enjoying it at all.
