Down hill

Used to be a fairly decent show. However, like most network TV, it has become a platform for biased agenda. Not worth watching anymore. We have seen it from its beginning, we have deleted it from the DVR now. Nothing worse than trying to enjoy an evening to watch a program and relax, then to have the network shoving baseless nonsense down your throat. If thats your thing, then thats your show.

I’m not crazy about Anna. Not the theory of her character but her face expressions.
