4. It’s timely for the current refugee crisis

You’ll have seen all the photos of refugees coming to countries on life rafts. Not all of them make it alive. What we don’t see is what happens after that. At least, not really. You’ll hear stories but only the stories the press wants to share.

Taken Down goes into a few more details. Where do the refugees go when they’ve been processed? How long does it take for asylum to be granted?

However, while the show focuses a lot on asylum seekers, it isn’t the sole focus. This isn’t a show pushing an agenda, but showing the realities of the situation.

3. Individual storylines to piece together

Each of the characters has their own storyline. Some of them come together, but others remain focus and standalone. One of the benefits of Taken Down is the smaller core cast. We get a chance to really get to know each of the characters, understand their motivations and get to know their secrets.

This is especially important for the detectives. One of them has plenty of secrets of her own, but will those secrets affect the way she works?
