What a depressing episode.
9 August 2019 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

When a show starts out with the Challenger disaster, you would think things would improve with the script. . However, in the showing it only gets worse and more and more melancholy that makes Season Three appear to have been a miscue. Loved the first two seasons- but this show is bring me down. That is not good for a series that relies on viewers. There is very little entertainment in the show as we get saddest in nearly every scene. Even though, this was not the best showing- we can only hope the writers get back to the show we expect. This was not the case in this depressing writing attempt. Give us back the girls that we follow each show. Give us the fantasy we expect. Not news that bring us down. Save that stuff for a documentary.
