  1. I've actually never heard of this before. Not really my cup of tea and because I have a lot already waiting for me to watch, I'll just skip it. Hope I'm not missing out.

    1. But it's a comedy series :) I opted not to watch it, though, when they mention somewhere that the blond warrioress likes to rape men during their pillaging. How is that funny?

    3. It's a sad period for movies, and will be even sadder, as so many movies have shut down production and everything will be postponed or binned.
