... keeps up.. will be remembered as one of the best
16 August 2016 | by bjariasSee all my reviews

..through two seasons this is as good as it gets. Anyone remembering Outrageous Fortune can relate. In the States we can't come close to doing this stuff... so wish we could. There's no weak parts.. everything works, and the main lead (empowered female) centers the entire deal.. she is just amazingly good. You want to be drawn into the story-line, and these are the the kinds of productions that do it better than any of the numerous others. They've committed to a third season to air sometime in 2017 and cannot wait. There's only a handful of top notch shows out there right now.. and without a doubt this is one of the more outstanding of the entire group.
