Good Introduction, Bad Episode
21 July 2019 | by tlinsten-44374See all my reviews

For a episode itself it lacked any real story, the humour didn't really fit for characters we just met but as we go along we connect more and will enjoy more but this episode was just not the best, But did do a good job introducing us to what the characters act like around each other and there relationships.
