Loved it until this episode
29 September 2019 | by charlottewillekens-17838See all my reviews

Why the musical? Seriously, why?! Haven't they learned from other series' ratings that a vast majority of us do not like this? If I wanted to see a musical I would watch mama mia. This episode is awful, do yourself a favor and skip this one. The rest is all good.
