Best series of all time

I love the dark vibes of the show. The quality is very good and the storylines are absolutely fantastic. It‘s a mixture of comedy, horror and drama. Can be very sad but also very funny. For the length of the series there are not many sex scenes but more references to sex (for comedy). The characters are so amazing written it’s like they become your best friends over time. I’ve never cried so much while watching a show. When I tell you I cried for a week after watching the finale. Watch it.

Great messages
