Episode Review Episode Review

It’s a great idea to piggyback off a successful film plot. But, do you really like it? Probably, not. The show is mostly drama and no enjoyment. In addition, at times it’s like something like a kid’s animation program. Although it’s entertaining, the show does not offer anything more than a once-in-a-lifetime viewing. There’s not any reason to watch an episode unless it’s a regular routine to watch the most recent episode.
