Wow; am I in the minority
14 September 2016 | by aeasmmikeySee all my reviews

We watched the premier on some streaming service. 10 minutes in, my husband asked if I wanted to call it. i said no, we were committed to watching the whole thing.

Now, keep in mind -- we watch everything at least one time in the new season.

But after poking around online at all the pre-reviews, we are certainly in the minority. Everyone loves this -- except us.

We found it stupid, clichéd, predictable, and heavy handed. Just awful. Everyone else found it charming.

You choose. We could barely get through the premier.
