L.A. TIMES: Brian Mullins' outlier pan of It's a Sin is worth reading even if you loved the series (as I did, though I despised episode 5 for some of the reasons he articulates). His comments about Colin's story arc ring true to me, even though it was the part of the series that touched me the most deeply; even as I watched his story unfolding, I felt like maybe it was dramatically effective but questionable regarding messaging.
That said, I highly recommend episodes 1-4, and I guess episode 5 seems to be splitting some viewers, with most finding it knock-down, drag-out effective and people like me finding it something I wish had been knocked down and dragged out.
