entertaining and thought provoking
27 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To previous uptight reviewer...go back to your crap hole country and watch god propaganda all day. some of us can actually watch shows that don't agree with our values and still appreciate the entertainment value. I noticed how offended you are by the affair itself but not about the person murdered..... twisted sense of priorities. I find this show..thought provoking. Maybe one should think of all the things that could go wrong if you have an affair that's why I have no problem with the show being on TV it can be used as a learning tool at least something to make people think. I Beli eve lessons c an be learned while also watching something of interest.
