Other viewers praised the series' commentary on today's society, with one person tweeting: "#RulesOfTheGame is excellent. A real insight into the #MeToo culture," while another added: "Cannot understand the criticism of #RulesOfTheGame. Painfully true to life (exaggerated? Of course) picture of a dysfunctional second-generation family business. A new genre of dark comedy/murder mystery. Maxine Peake only picks winners!."
