misogynist trash
25 June 2017 | by rachelle-45903See all my reviews

This show is completely stupid and disgusting. It seems to be Netflix's coming out to full on center stage big business where degrading women of all nationalities by white Jewish men or man is seen as "good" or "what you need t do". How does a network cancel a positive show like Sense 8 and then feed us this disgusting garbage ??????? Grow up Netflix!!! You have just recently taken a turn for the worst.
