User Reviews

 
One of the best show's of all time
17 October 2018 | by bbgrl93See all my reviews

This is by far one of the best shows I've seen. As with every show, there were a few episodes that were dry but overall it was really good and I couldn't resist binge watching episodes! The shows final finale was by far one of the best I've ever seen, couldn't help but shed some tears. They tie everything together perfectly, I would deff rewatch this series
