Nicely done
29 March 2018 | by miguelgoodmanSee all my reviews

By episode 3, I was starting to lose interest in this show, but immediately after that, it just got so good. From episode 4 and on, it just keeps getting better and better. I was saying to myself that, if the show keeps up going downhill like that in episode 3 and 1, I won't keep watching, but suddenly, wow! I mean WOW! At any time I start to lose interest in this show, it just starts to surprise me and gets so much better.

I couldn't believe what I was watching. I am a 29 year old hetero male and I never cried so much to a simple television episode. This episode was very heavy and hard to watch. It takes a lot to impress me. This episode touched me. This was one of the few magical moments you get to witness on TV. It's an overwhelming experience that will grab you so hard, you won't be able to look away from the TV. If you cry easily (and I don't), have lots and lots of tissues nearby for this one.

To the writers - keep it up like this. It's totally awesome.
