Amazing, enticing, suspenseful, endearing, keeps you longing for your next "fix".
24 September 2013 | by browncm-800-680926See all my reviews

I truly love this show!!! The actors are so captivating and addicting. I can't get enough. You are instantly drawn in from the second it starts. Through their performance they make you feel connected on such an emotional level. I really enjoy "getting lost" in a show that i watch; this show is so consuming that you cannot help but get lost in it. I cannot wait to see what comes next season. I just hope that the series continues as triumphant as it began; with all the wonderful writers, actors, directors, producers, and everyone else that made it such a great success. Shows such as these make "movie" night suspenseful and enjoyable! The shear talent/gift that it takes to create these story lines/plots/themes never creases to amaze me!
