TV show my ass
6 February 2014 | by (Uruguay) – See all my reviews

A desperate attempt to milk money out of stupid viewers who are slaved by TV and have never heard of anything like Netflix where they could watch some real stuff. In this show lazy writing, cliché soap opera plot twists and horribly untalented actors are too visible. Everything sucks from start to beginning, from the language characters use to cheap background music. This suffers from ultimately low budget, although no amount of money could save it, the concept is just doomed.

In conclusion, if you want to suffer half hours and throw objects to your TV screen, this is what you want to watch.

And this airs in prime time. Great job Finland, you did it again.
