Something else.
15 January 2019 | by treeborn-609-758362See all my reviews

I've never written a review before but felt I had to for this program due to how under the radar it is and how most people I'm assuming would just pass over it. I'm from the UK so the fact I've sent this is by pure coincidence but I never turned back. From the get go I knew this was going to be different and I could understand if you wanted to leave it after the first episode but please see its potential. If you follow through with this program it evolves in to something so unique and actually quite relevant in a way. Don't just dismiss this program as trying to be funny in a new way. It was picked up for a reason and the writers have obviously got a message in mind. Give it a go and be more open minded. I will definitely be putting this on my list of things you must see before your die but would recommend seeing asap as it's very relevent to the times we are living in now.
