Not as expected,MUCH BETTER!!!!
30 September 2013 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Season 2 was a bit let-down,we all know that.But still that doesn't mean we should stop seeing it.I mean not everything is perfect.So season 3 started with a bang with it's super-awesome episode.It was so happening.Many things happened in it and i was glued to it.I couldn't ask for anything else in this first episode.The acting,humor,intensity,keeping you on the edge of your seat,everything was well-managed.And it ended in such a place,that waiting for the next Sunday would be very hard.The bond between the characters was awesome.The characters you are meant to hate,you will.And those you want to love,you will.I'm really happy that it proceeded for the 3rd season and i really hope it has a lot more coming for us.
