Pretentious Schlock!
29 August 2020 | by rich7354See all my reviews

This series had all the appeal of a swift kick to your "most private of places". I felt no joy, nor did I sympathize with any of the main characters; they were all superficial, shallow, and self absorbed. To top it off, the entire narrative was boring and dragged on painfully.
