Witse
24 December 2006 | by bondgirl_2170See all my reviews

well i started watching Witse , i loved it at first but the last 2 episodes i saw on TV (dec 2006), were not that entertaining as they used to do! as "pourquoi_pas" said , maybe it's the writers ... i don't think it's a actors thing ... if the acting has not been done it a good way it 's the director who has to make the right the actors make it do the way he sees it, & if the director is satisfied or there is no more budget those things can happen that it turns out like this, i hope that "Witse" will return, i was sad when Dimitri Died, to me that was a lass ...

anyway , good luck to the team in doing a good job for Belgium television!
