If someone is ever allowed to do something like this...
3 April 2009 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

then these people are. You could say *thank you* to your fans in million ways. But this was maybe the best one to do it. It couldn't be more funny, amazingly well written, twisted, and still to be taken more seriously. Just about last week I was commenting with a friend of mine- and what if the screenplay writers are checking on all the theories on what's going to happen on the net... what if some of these things we're going through in our minds in every SN-free day happens, like, for real...

and just about then they all happen, and I could be lip- synchronizing- *but hey, I didn't even write this stuff down!!* whatever, I don't get any hopes high for the final episode- now I just happen to KNOW that ANYTHING is possible.

thank you for that.
